Fancy your very own Nuclear Bunker?
If the news of the last few months has left you wanting to sure up your safety, SDL Property Auctions have got the perfect property purchase for you.
Located in Louth in Lincolnshire, the Nuclear Bunker offers one lucky buyer to acquire a piece of British war history. Constructed in the late 1950s, the site was originally designed to provide protection for three observers to survive a nuclear attack, with food and water provided for fourteen days. Within this time, they were expected to report on any nuclear bursts and report on the fall out of an attack.
The bunker is secure, dry and still in its original condition (including body bags, gas marks and even a red telephone box) making this a real find for any history buff, and with a guide price of just £25,000+ plus fees, it could be a real bargain too!
Most of the sites were decommissioned and sold off in the early 1990s as the threat of nuclear war lessened after the fall of the Soviet Union, and we have been informed that many have been bought up by telecom companies for use as mobile phone masts due to their favourable signal locations.
Jim Demitriou, National Valuer at SDL Property Auctions said: “It’s a great property for people looking for something off-grid or to get away from it all. It’s a privilege to be able to sell a piece of British history and would be perfect for anyone interest in owning a historic location. I’d advise anyone with interest in the site to speak to the local council and their planning permission team to see what they could potentially do with the site.”
The bunker will be sold in SDL Property Auctions’ November Auction on Thursday 24th November. To register to bid, visit their website or get in touch with the team on 0800 046 5454.
