RAF Bolt Head

Thank you to Christopher Howell for all that he is doing to try and preserve the Bunker at Bolt Head as part of our national heritage.

Hope Cove was a World War II Radar Station and in the early 1950' was revamped as part of the RAF's Rotor Air Defence Scheme before the R6 Bunker was turned into a regional seat of Government during the Cold War era. Truly a chilling reminder of how close we came to Armageddon.

I do hope that Chris will succeed in his efforts to save this museum.
