York Cold War Bunker :: Shared Description

The York Cold War Bunker was built in 1961 to monitor nuclear explosions and fallout in Yorkshire, in the event of a nuclear war. It was one of around 30 in the United Kingdom. This one was the regional headquarters and control centre for the Royal Observer Corps's No. 20 Group until its closure in 1991.
When active the building would have housed 60 members of the Royal Observer Corps. They would have collated details collected by posts around the region of exploded nuclear bombs and radioactive fallout.
The building is now preserved by English heritage and is the only example of an ROC control building preserved in its operational condition and is open to the public as a museum.
