One event on 7 September 2024 at 10:00 am

Part of the Lincolnshire HODs Festival 2024

Discover the military observation post hidden just a stone’s throw from the road. Retired members of the Royal Observer Corps will share the history of the service and their memories of times spent in the bunker, monitoring for impending nuclear attacks.

Most of the tour will take place overground, however access to the bunker is via a 14 ft ladder and is unsuitable for those with mobility issues or claustrophobia. The team will ask you to complete a medical declaration before entering the bunker to certify that you are fit to take part. Sensible shoes are required to access the bunker. Dogs are welcome, however must be kept on a lead and must be supervised at all times. This may mean that pairs are split up so that one person can watch the dog above ground whilst the other goes down into the bunker. Visitors going down into the bunker must be a minimum age of 10 years old and anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
