    I am enquiring as to whether it is possible for school groups to visit the bunker. Would appreciate a reply.

    Thanks

    Hi

    We’re going to develop some Secret Bunker boxes of artefacts for schools and community groups to borrow! Would anyone involved in the Preservation Group be interested in helping us decide what should go in these Boxes of Delight? If so please email me!

    Many thanks, Cath

    We are launching the listening trail in Blakelaw Park and Kenton Library on Thursday 8 August 2-5pm.
    Would Bunker 13 be interested in taking part – for example as for the mini fest event in May 2011, having a stall with information about the bunkers and campaign?

    Excerpts from the Local History talk at City Library given by Michael Younger, together with the walk round with John Ellis and Michael Hunsley are part of the trail. It would be fantastic if you could attend – your input has helped tremendously with the content.

    It is a fantastic opportunity to help raise the profile of Bunker 13 with the local community and we are planning for good media coverage of the event.

    I am planning a number of activities to take place in Blakelaw Park – creating a good event for people. It would be great and fitting if Bunker 13 had a presence there, especially in the run up to the memorial day of 15 August, the Hardest Day.

    I look forward to hearing from you Bunker 13!

    Best wishes, Lucie

    Hi
    Can you tell me when the bunker was given a grade 2 listing.

    Regards, Rob.

  • I was in the bunker in the late50s or early 60s. I was a student and had a summer job as a porter with a Necastle store that government approval/contract to a variety of jobs. One was to move a perpex board of a map of what may have been a series of rings perhaps showing possible fallout areas following a thermonuclear attack on the city. As the task of moving it (a similar size to a school black board on castors) could have been done by a six-year old. However our team of about six of us took most of the day to complete it. (HM Gov paying us. A good job well done?) With time on my hands I explored further. It seemed to be very much ready for action. The entry seemed to have a positive air pressure as you entered. The long steps down were fully illuminated as was the very large plotting room. I think there were tunnels of the main area (perhaps sleeping areas) I was unable to light them to see,and as a very very junior temp.member of the slightly over staffed team I did not chance my luck. I hope this is of interest.(Years later I put a bid in to the MOD to buy a bunker at Stannington….but that is another story)
