BUNKER THIRTEEN

John Mabbitt (Principal Historic Environment Consultant at Wood Plc) delivering a fascinating presentation on the Kenton and Blakelaw Bunkers at the Tyne & Wear Archaeology Day held in the Banqueting Suite, Newcastle Civic Centre on 16th June 2018.

On a brighter note a couple of interesting finds up on one of the cable trays in the lower corridor. A Fry's Turkish delight wrapper from the pre-decimal era and a transparency from an ROC civil defence exercise (Arcade) dating from the cold-war. The latter was rolled up in the (very) mouldy cardboard tube in the second picture.

BUNKER THIRTEEN

Bit of a gap in postings on here - not a lot been happening. Stopped by the bunker last week, did the usual walk round of the outside and found that someone has decided they don't like the tanking at the back door. Anyone know how to repair this stuff? As far as I know it's called Ashphelte. Obviously as it's a listed building it will have to be repaired with the proper stuff. Just hope it doesn't let in too much water! Must go back and recover the pieces and remove the block that was, presumably, used to do the damage. ... See MoreSee Less
