Background There are just over 1,000 of these iconic underground bunkers left, and it is genuinely a rare thing nowadays for them to come up for sale.Since the inception of ROC in 1925 as an integral part of the UK air defence system, the primary role of the Royal Observer Corps (ROC) was the recognition and identification of hostile aircraft. With the start of the cold war and the increasing threat of nuclear attack in the 1950’s, the ROC was given the added responsibility of reporting nuclear bursts and monitoring fall-out which necessitated the construction of 1563 underground monitoring posts throughout Great Britain & Northern Ireland. In 1991 it was decided by the Home Office & MOD that the ROC would cease active training and the remaining underground posts were closed at the end of September that year. Most of the posts closed in 1968 reverted back to the original landowners while those closed in 1992 were put out to public tender.Number of Bedrooms:Studio, Private / Estate agent:Private, Location:Norfolk, Property Type:Land, Sort By:For Sale
