Looks like a nice one.

Having just retired and collared a decent lump sum off the pension, I would buy this if it were near to me.

Great for a buggin out stash! It needs some foliage around it?

Have never understood why anyone would want a big hole in the ground.
Can you imagine after shtf there are 10000 people parked above your head all around your entrance. Will do your head in wondering when they will find a way in. After all they have nothing better to do than talk about how to get at all your preps ..and you..down there.
Get a bunker that is at least a LITTLE difficult to get to.

I quite agree.

How many people do you know that know about ROC posts ?

Most people have never hard of them and wouldn't know where to find them or if they are habitable.

Plant a few bushes/shrubs around the entrance/vent and they are pretty much invisible; I cannot see a hungry mob turning up with kangos to try and get in on the off chance that theres a few tins of beans down there.

If a ROC bunker is your idea of having a safe, secure BOL then great. Having previously lived in Brundall for ten years I can confirm it and nearby Strumpshaw are pleasant places to live; also the bunker price seems very reasonable to me (not that I can afford it!)
However the thought of voluntarily burying myself into a hole in the ground doesn't really appeal :shock: I would feel trapped and completely unable to respond to any threats from anyone above ground. Maybe my imagination is taking over from rational thought but; isn't there the possibility that someone could seal the entrance from outside or maybe block up the air vents. Or maybe they'd pour flammable liquid down the vents and set it alight. (have I been watching too many James Bond type films?!)
No, an old ROC station is not for me, I'd rather take my chances above ground, whatever the situation, whatever the threat. 8-)
There may be trouble ahead
But while there's moonlight and music
And love and romance
Let's face the music and dance

Exactly Panther. Get a mountain hideout if you really want one.

You wont get much of a mountain hideout in Norfolk, the highest point is only 103 m

It's what floats the individual boat.I never ' got' why preppers want to bug out "to the woods".But for those who do,that's fine.My brother ' bugged out' a year or ten back. He lives an off grid life ( in more than one sense ;) ) on a New Age Traveller site. Not my way,but he is as happy as a pig in shite.

My brother and I actually own an island on the river.We inherited it from our rather delinquent Grandfather,who won it in a card game back in the 60's,where legend has it,lasted two days! There is a single brick ' cabin' there,that has a fireplace,and it measures 40' x 12'.We have water catchment,and a solar panel / leisure batteries.There is a ' garden' at the end where there are no trees,which I have covered with heavy black plastic.All the usual prepper stuff.However,the Bro' got fed up with living in a such a secluded place on his narrowboat moored there.The only way in and out is by outboard dinghy.

I suppose it could be a bug out location,I keeped it stocked as such, but it is more of a fishing ' weekender'.I would sooner be in my house!
