Taking an unlikely turn from my usual self and deciding to walk to work for a change, I stumbled across this… thing, that I have no idea what it is.
Heading north from my usual area of abode to pick up myself a new 4 wheeled toy (none from this report of course) and seeing this place was nearby, what better opportunity for a mooch.
So the first explore of 2017! Happy new year everyone. Well to say the first explore, it was the first day of exploring of the year after being kicked out of another location nearby.
Yes! Finally! After numerous failed attempts, our opportunity had finally arisen to see the all too well known Bawdsey R3 ROTOR Bunker. It’s only taken three visits and roughly a combined total of 350 miles to finally make it.
Driving past this place for as long as I can remember and has been on the list of places to explore for just as long, the opportunity finally arose when I spotted new fencing erected around the site. Rumour has it that the place is going to reopen as another restaurant.
Quick little explore this one, largely due to the lower level of the bunker being knee deep in water. Though a return trip with some wellies could well be on the cards at some stage… The bunker itself is well worth a look if you can brave the waters, it would also be worth noting to make sure you have a fresh set of batteries in your torch! Loose light down there and you will be stuck as the place is in total darkness! Here’s a little history on the site, once again shamelessly stolen from the interwebs.
