Reading War room on the Main Reading University campus at Whiteknights
General / July 1, 2017

On Wednesday 31st January four members of Subbrit visited the Reading War room on the Main Reading University campus at Whiteknights, those present were Keith Ward, Steve Fox and Duncan Halford (who arrange the trip). The bunker is on the South side of the Campus behind the new Agricultural building. (You can get to the bunker from the Earley Gate entrance), it is a two floored semi sunk oblong bunker on an east/west alignment which was built in 1953 along with 12 other identical ones built around the country.        These are at Newcastle, Leeds, Nottingham, Cambridge, London (5 buildings), Bristol, Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, and Tunbridge Wells & Belfast. They were used as RSG until it realised that they would not be big enough for the purpose and so in most cases their government use life was quite short. The main entrance and the emergency exit are on the east corner of the bunker, the main entrance facing north and the emergency exit on the south side. On the main entrance there are three doors, the first is made of metal about two inches thick though not solid it does have a large metal frame. Going trough this door you turn right…
