In order to present a credible civil defence structure, secret plans were drawn up to ensure that should war have broken out the government would survive to lead and reconstruct post war Britain. From the ashes of a thermo-nuclear conflict the UK was split into 11 defence regions, each with a Regional Government Headquarters (RGHQ) protected to a high standard against the effects of nuclear weapons.

long ago - most of the bunkers are in less than serviceable condition - and in many cases simply sealed off. As for evidence of an existing plan - well we don't know - but there is still a manhole cover outside Buckingham Palace that is padlocked off and said to lead to a branch Underground line direct to Heathrow.

Bunkers near liverpool...
I have heard of the one by the docks. My dad did some work in the 70s on an area beside the m62, coming out of liverpool, I cant remember the name of the exact place... It was supposedly a food dump, a bunker full of tins. There is now a civil airport there.

Of course its population.
The south is more densely populated, hence more regions, London is the most densly populated, therefore is a region unto itself.
Scotland is huge but empty. Best place to be in a nuclear war!
