Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker. The Bunker was built on farm land which had belonged to J.A.Parrish. It was initially an RAF ROTOR Station and then designated as a Regional Government Headquarters. Later it was used as a civil defence centre. It is 125 feet underground and the entrance is an ordinary looking 'bungalow' amongst trees. There is also a radio mast, a deep well and beds for hundreds of civilian and military personnel. It was decommissioned in 1992 and bought back by the Parrish family. It is now open as a museum and visitor attraction.
