 Overview
 Description
The bunker is situated in a clifftop position looking south into the English Channel. The complex is situated within its own perimeter fence and is next to a communications antenna. The bunker itself dominates the site with various outbuildings, water tanks and machinery plants nearby. Site appears to be adjoining an active farm as there was a lot of arable land nearby. Site has its own bore-hole for water and there is an air strip for small single engine aircraft.

     History
    Former 1950s Radar base and part of the United Kingdom ROTOR air defence early warning screen. Radar base was converted by the Home Office to function as a Regional Seat of Government in the event of a nuclear war and the breakdown of centralised government authority. The Bunker would have controlled a decentralised fiefdom which was composed of the greater South-west area of Britain. It also functioned as a Sub-regional Control, Regional Headquarters and Regional Government Headquarters.
