    Yes in the bomb store at Alconbury.
    My re-enactment group buys from them.

    think they only moved on to Alconbury on late 09? ...pre this they had stuff squirrelled away all over the place. (think Cube are on there too now!).

    The Little Harrowden Bunkers,

    I visited yesterday after 30 years with my son in law and grandson. In fact I had difficulty recalling exactly where they were after all that time and went to wrong wood. However a friendly farmer ploughing nearby, came over and asked what we were doing. Bunkers I said, no he said, PRIVATE. Oh please I said promised son in law etc. so we got the OK and carried on, a big thanks to Mr Farmer!

    The bunkers are owned by The Reverend Roy Lancaster of Kimbolton who still uses them for storing his hi-class fireworks.

    There is a grim foreboding about this place, in fact it is as unnerving now as I remember especially the 3rd bunker set of to the left, further in the wood. EERIE is the word.

    Obviously something pretty nasty was stored in these prior to their present use, and it does certainly appear these go underground, maybe I will never find out, but they are interesting none the less!
