News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Harty Ferry Decoy Bunker?
« Reply #1 on: March 25, 2016, 00:20:53 »
Is this a decoy bunker at Harty Ferry?

 I only got a few picture as camera ran out of power.
There is a blast walled entrance with 2 rooms, one small and with pipe hole near top and a larger room with 2 holes in the wall, and escape shaft in the back corner.
The larger one is @ 8 to10 inches in diameter and has a 6 bolts ln a "flange fitting" or "porthole" pattern. This is directly above a 4 inch hole.
Any idea's on the role of this bunker?

I will be carrying a tape measure and note pad next time I'm out!
