Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker
In 1976 the site at Hack Green was purchased from the MOD by the Home Office Emergency Planning Division to be converted into a protected seat of government for Home Defence Region. It was cloaked in considerable secrecy over a five year period. At a cost reputed to be some £32 million, the original Rotor radar bunker was converted into a vast underground complex containing its own generating plant, air conditioning and life support, nuclear fallout filter rooms, communications, emergency water supply and all the support services that would be required to enable the 135 civil servants and military personnel to survive a sustained nuclear attack and stayed secret for more than 50 years. Now the blast doors are open and you can discover the labyrinth of rooms and authentic equipment used to run this defence region in the event of a National Emergency.
We will be departing Hack Green at Approx. 4pm returning back through to the Cheshire Countryside with the option of joining us for a Sunday roast at 4:45 pm at The Tigers Head, Norley.
Numbers are limited to max 30 for the Sunday roast and will need to be pre book in advance to ensure you have a place. Please email John Leleu, firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us for the run or the meal confirming numbers attending and if joining us for the meal your food choice.
