    Wow what a find. My first impression from looking at the photos was that this could be a British resistance base, used in case of invasion, But, no it's not.
    I bet that was a good feeling finding the radio equipment? Any other interesting ww2 era finds in there?

    definately nothing as good as a brit resistance bunker,just an old long forgotten air-raid shelter that had stuff stored in it,didnt find any other stuff apart from the electronics kit inside,oh and some spiders that looked as though they had been there since the 1940s,attatched picture shows Part of the site as you can see theres lots of ammunition storage bunkers or the remains of them,most of which are in use by the sites owners,also you can still see cratering from ww1 trench mortar training/trials.

    I have a site i am currently detecting & one that I will move onto, both private land. the second has 3 bunkers, sealed in 1946.... but built over in the 1980's! I hope that I can get some good finds around them
