Did you know that there is a Cold War bunker in Brookmans Park that would have been used for broadcasting government-controlled information to the nation if there was a threat of a nuclear attack?

It’s under the Brookmans Park Transmitting Station and is one of 11 similar sites around the country.

The bunker is mentioned in a document produced by developers who have put forward plans for housing and commercial units on the site. The plans show the bunker would be preserved.
