I'm sure that the Farthing Corner shelter was up for sale as a dwelling around 1999-2000 as one of my friends from university was interested in buying it as a 'quirky' home, but the price was just too high.

How did it become to be in such a state in a relatively short period of time? Does Southern Water still own the shelter now? It seems odd that only 15 years ago it was up for sale with quite a hefty price tag!

Unfortunately this is wide open and has been for a long time, it means it is a local playground and gets mistreated :-(

Its OK I have ID,d it it is the Southern Water Nuclear Shelter by Farthing Corner .
 His pics from the other day show much more graffiti and destruction than on your post from July or the vid on the link below.

Thanks Kyn,

It's not the one in the lane that was filled in years ago. I reckon unless the chap is telling porkies it is a recent find we don't know of.

Thanks Grandarog.

The nearest ROC Post would be Meresborough Lane, but I thought that one was concrete filled...

There is the Southern Water bunker close by, but not in Hartlip.

  Does any one on here know the location of an Roc Post or Cold war Bunker at Hartlip. ???
There are photos on another website taken the other day of a bunker intererior ,which although graffitted badly ,appears virtually as was(minus Furniture.)
 The poster stated located at Hartlip when asked. There doesnt seem to be any record of it on Sub Brit or other sites as far as i can see. :)
