© English Heritage.NMR I am again indebted to English Heritage National Monuments Record for permission to reproduce these photographs of the Ullenwood bunker exterior taken in July 1999 by Michael Hesketh-Roberts as part of the RCHME/EH "Cold War Project" which are both captioned "This Sub-Regional Government HQ was formerly an anti-aircraft operations room".

Clearly if the background radiation wasn't too bad the rations could have been supplemented with some nettle soup. Doubtless someone will point out that young nettletops are best and these look a trifle advanced by July.
