Cuckfield ROC/Nuclear Bunker Open Day - 10-2pm

The Cuckfield Royal Observer Corps post is a small underground bunker, one of over 1,500 that were built to monitor the fallout from a nuclear war.

Closed down in the 1990s as no longer needed, most are derelict or flooded, but some have been restored, such as the one in Cuckfield.

It’s been restored to the state it was when it closed down, with newspaper articles still talking about Soviet aggression, tins of preserved food for the survivors and lots of equipment to monitor the nuclear attack and fallout.
