I was digging around on the internet and found that there used to be or still is an underground city in wiltshire that would have been used by govt in times of War etc.
Do any of you out there know of anymore secret bases or cities within the UK.

I heard of one that is down in cornwall somewhere.
Anyone know of this ????

All replies and thanked in advance.

I can help you with that, there is a "hollow hill" just next to the main bridge over the Tamar which separates Torpoint (devon) and Plymouth.
I have had first hand testimony of someone who visited the site during nuclear leak training. It's BIG...

Hi Colec,

The Corsham area is still very active, as for other sites, a simple search on here for UK Secret Bases will provide you lots of information without us having to re post it all!

Top man.

Thanks very much for the intel.
In some situations there are places that you want to know about and find and others to just steer clear of.

Thanks again.

when i lived in England.. Forest of Dean area, Gloucestershire... i would go out walking the dogs with my grandad.. and in the woods a bit theres was this stone square about 15 ft by 15 ft with a metal pipe in the middle (air pipe)... we always used to throw rocks an stuff down there and you could hear it hit the floor, it sounded like a pretty deep hole... but never did find out what was down there... it was wierd cause i dont think there was any other buildings near by.. but this was years ago when i was just a kid so my memory is a little fuzzy

It could be a vent for old mine workings. They're usually placed on top of the old mine shaft and are the last thing in the area to show there was a coal mine there. We have loads of them up north. If you want I could get pictures of one for you to compare it to.

As for underground facilities I've seen plenty of the old Observer Corps monitoring bunkers... and they are all tiny. I'd hate to be cooped up in those during times of high tension. Since the Observer Corps was disbanded a lot of them are falling into disrepair due to vandals. If you're lucky you might find an open one.

I wouldn't mind taking a walk around the Burlington Complex though, I'm fascinated by such things.
