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.

You can read about the Brookmans Park Cold War bunker on our history site, the North Mymms History Project.
