Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker Video Tour

Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker, the largest and deepest cold war bunker open to the public in South East England.

Hidden in a wood off the A128 Ongar (now well sign-posted for the tourist trade), Brentwood Road, is a small bungalow well built which hides a three floored bunker complex 125 feet (38 m) underground, a long corridor leads down to a place in which 600 people would have been confined behind blast proof doors in the event of a nuclear war.

The bunker was originally built in 1952/3 by the construction firm Peter Lind & Company Ltd, as part of ROTOR, an urgent government building programme to improve Britain's air defence network and became the Sector Operations Command for the RAF Fighter Command with responsibility for the London Sector.

It subsequently became adopted as a potential 'regional government bunker' as the threat of nuclear war grew in the 1960s. The bunker was sold in the 1990s and is now a tourist attraction and film location.The bunker is currently owned and operated by the family who originally owned the land before the military moved in. It has a many historical items remaining intact including a BBC studio.

A souvenir shop in the original canteen sells items, including government literature produced for the public in the early 1980s.

The Owner Mike Parrish shows you around in this video tour.

Fantastic video. Cheers. The Cold War and nuclear bunkers are fascinating.
Amazing that stations like this were still operational until 1994 in the
UK. Marauding gangs, murdering and raping in a nuclear dystopia is a
chilling thought. The 'Protect and Survive' civil defence films made the in
the 70's ask members of the public to help neighbours when the all clear
sounded. Of course they wouldn't though, it would have been every man for

Author wizardtech1 (3 years)
I love how at the end it looks like fallout the game. At the beginning of
the game. When he walks out of the tunnel. I can only imagine how it would
have felt like to live in there. It must suck monkey balls to know that the
world got blown up.

"no birds" interesting...

Author tectorama (1 year)
I went on Thursday for the first time. Interesting place, and makes you
wonder what would have happened if the balloon had gone up. It's very
likely that law and order would have broken down very quickly, and
officials allocated jobs in the bunker, would have more than likely stayed
outside with their families. Three months in there and nothing to come out
to. Everything would have been contaminated, so no food or water. Maybe why
they had a stock of cyanide in the bunker ?

Author Marked One (3 years)
wait but if the home office radio room is out side of the blast doors so
they would not be safe form gangs trying to enter the bunker unless armed
guards were there and they would not be safe from other stuff and were the
blast door there to stop gangs from getting in or were there other reasons
and why are there bunk beds along the corridor because who ever sleeps
there is not safe
