Having served with the Army in the late 70's and 80's I can say a big YES to there being very large underground bases, and not so large bases here in the UK. I’ve seen some with my own eyes and spent several days in them, as to location I am unable to give it as most of the time these bases were so secretive about their location they only allowed us in, in closed vans from the outside they looked like normal tinted windowed van but inside they had coverings over them and there was a bulkhead to stop us seeing forward. Some of these bases went down as many as 15 floors and there was one that went even further but we weren’t allowed down there.

As to them being interconected I couldn't say

Hello all
.

Just believed we should get some more info on the UK side of Secret Facilities.

I live in staffordshire and its well known fact that RAF Stafford (Surposed Supply Dept.) has a vast undergound passage way connecting it through to other bases all accross the UK. as for Fact i have witnessed 2 soildiers coming out of the ground as it appeared, on the Staffs Moors.

Photos of the building coming as soon as i go bk up there.

but anyway anyone else wish to add to the base list?

(cheers this is my first post so hello all)

Oh really, it's a 'well-known fact'? Why make silly statements like that? Are you just trying to add a bit more validity to your own belief that "RAF Stafford (Surposed Supply Dept.) has a vast undergound passage way connecting it through to other bases all accross the UK"?

i was walking and i came across this underground building
[url=http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=rochdale&ll=53.618178,-2.096082&spn=0.001699,0.008326&t=k]
it as no signs on the fence but it is very high

I think it is wrong to call them *secret*

Large numbers of people know they exist whether that being military or civilian. I mean the amount of info given on this thread alone proves otherwise.
Many bunkers were built during the Cold War to house missiles and to provide security to politico's and Military leaders. This I believe to be perfectly acceptable.
Many of the military bases in Northern Ireland have underground bunkers (whether NATO or British army)
I find a large labrinyth of interconnecting tunnels far fetched but tunnels connecting individual bases in close proximity believable and normal for security reasons.

Thought i'd update this thread with a bit of news on the underground base topic - Wiltshire was mentioned very early on in the thread and I just wanted to let you all know that recently the area has gone up for sale!

Found a link to this on the Sunday Times website so thought i'd post it here - sounds like something out of a film, an entire underground city!

Maybe all the ATS members can chip in together and we'll all live down there

call me stupid, but isnt the whole idea of secret bases and passage ways is that they remain a secret. probly why there is hardly any information on them.

I did an exercise at HMNB Clyde.

HM Naval Base Clyde, at Faslane, some 25 miles north west of Glasgow, is home to the United Kingdom's strategic nuclear deterrent and the headquarters of the Royal Navy in Scotland.

I was very young in junior leader's to be exact. But i remember we went up onto the hills for a week.

We dug in for the first night in some wooded area above a valley.

Now the reason i remember this area is one of our role's was to observe this one area.

This place was wierd it was in the base of the valley and all up the side's were these odd bunker's.

Dug into the mountain if you will.

What made it even more odd was the fact that every so often a loud speaker would sound that would echo thru the valley.

This would be followed by a voice and i can not for the life in me remember what this voice was saying but is was bizzare.

I class this place as being even more bizzare than porton down. And i have spent a great deal of time there.

Regard's
Lee

Hi

I live in this neck of woods and if the train track you are thinking of is the same as the one i'm thinking of it is nothing more sinister than a target railway, targets are shuttled along the 100m track by small locos which disapear into a 'tunnel' shelter when moving targets are not required to protect them from other range activities.

as far as i know, and thats quite a long way as i have friends and relatives in the forces who have been stationed at the bovington tank base, what you see is what you get as far as lulworth goes. the only thing of interest is that there are a couple of medium size (apparently designed for about 50 people) domestic fall out shelters with the basements of buildings on the barrack sites. these are not true nuclear bunkers and will not withstand anything much but will protect from the effects of distant fall out (say if london had a cold war era bomb dropped on it you would probably be ok in these sorts of bunkers) they have provisions and air scrubbers but not a lot else.

hi there,

when you say it would withstand the fallout from a coldwar era bomb on London, Do you know any info on the effects of a modern era bomb would be ??

thanks

I've had a chat with a very good friend of mine who untill a few years ago worked for the atomic energy authority (shes now a private consultant) and whilst she doesn't make bombs, and never has made bombs, she is an expert in dealing with the after effects of nuclear accidents, as such she has a professional interest in knowing what the effects of a modern nuclear strike might be.

she gives your chances in the bunker in question as being:

"at that distance from the blast centre, not better than 60/40 in your favour for 2 reasons.
1) the concrete structure of a 1950/60s era bunker is almost certainly in dubious order and may not be resistant to
a) the effects of the primary blast on the surface and
b) not resistant to the additional seismic effects.
2) it has been shown that modern nuclear weapons produce radioactive dust many times finer than previously thought. There are no filters/scrubbers resistant to ingress by this material, in fact there is a great likelihood that many supposedly sealed recirculating systems are not resistant to this material either"

She points out that air handlers with any chance of working correctly are almost exclusively reserved for utterly critical military applications and are not applied to the sort of shelter we are dealing with here. to the best of her knowledge there are no commercially available systems which would provide adequate protection.

Apparently she gets asked questions like this quite a lot by rich people trying to rid themselves of several million pounds by building a bunker to write off against tax!

(if I wasn't who I am to her, this information would have cost about £600!)

;0)
