Pool Road, Doom City, Hawkhills, Easingwold, Yorkshire
When the Hawkhills Estate was a Civil Defence School a mock village known as "Doom City" was built in this area. This is Pool Road where there were mock houses and a mock factory. The area was used by the Military and Fire Service to practice search and rescue and test equipment. The site is now a pleasant walk for people attending the nearby college.
