Would you expect a secret nuclear bunker to be found under an innocuous farm? Well, that’s sort of the point. One hundred feet underground, the Secret Bunker was built in 1953 as part of Britain’s defences as the Cold War began to progress. It’s now an interactive museum detailing the bunker’s history.
On the face of it, it looks like an ordinary farmhouse. But in times of conflict and war, extraordinary things can happen. And under this Scottish farmhouse on the outskirts of St Andrews, a bunker was dug.
The size of two football pitches, it was a safe haven some 100 feet underground should the Cold War have developed a further icy blast. Thankfully, it didn’t and now, the secret bunker is a popular tourist attraction and well worth exploring.
