We hope that you dare to join us or Spectrum Ghost Watch, as we head into the depths of Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker on this late-night fundraiser!
A simple cottage hides the entry to a much deeper place buried in the hillside.
Many paranormal investigations have taken place at the bunker over time, and with or without activity, The Bunker is a pretty spooky environment all by itself! Lots of researches have yielded the unexplained, be it something like orbs, sounds, smells, or in several cases, seeing something. The Bunker has been covered many times on YouTube, through documentaries and TV series, including Most Haunted.
The fundraiser takes places on Sunday, May 24th which backs on to a Bank Holiday. The approximate timing at present is 7 pm until the early hours but may be adjusted slightly to suit the group and 20 places are initially available. Still, a minimum of 15 must be in place.
The Evening Ahead
Spectrum will have the run of the Bunker throughout our visit. The event is based upon sets of small groups observing key areas, rotating through out the building during the course of the evening, with plenty of opportunity for everyone to catch up together at break points on their progress. Our visit is based purely on your own interpretation of your senses, anything you may see, hear or smell etc. has not been deliberately fabricated in anyway to create an experience.
For your reference the Bunkers canteen has self-serve tea, coffee and cold drinks, biscuits, filled rolls, soup etc. and an honesty box, but you are welcome to bring your own food/drink as you wish. Please note that no transport is provided to or from the venue.
About Kelvedon Hatch – Secret Nuclear Bunker
Kelvedon Hatch has seen life in many different ways, starting with its role as an RAF ROTOR Station. Its purpose was to counter a possible attack by Soviet bombers. In the time that followed it was briefly a civil defence centre through to its most recent life as a Regional Government HQ in the 1960s. Kelvedon Hatch was designed to hold up to 600 military and civilian personnel, possibly even the Prime Minister included. Their collective task was to organise the survival of the population in the awful aftermath of a nuclear war.
There were also spare bunk beds in the tunnel, to help accommodate some of the hundreds of civilian and military personnel that would be stationed here in a time of a nuclear attack. The bunker was built on land requisitioned from the local farmer J.A.Parrish.
Paradoxically as the heat of the Cold War died down, the bunker and its ancillary systems were surplus to Government requirements and were costing up to 3 million pounds a year to keep on standby. Upon decommissioning in 1992 the bunker was repurchased from the Government by the Parrish family, at a closed bid public auction, and hence is now privately owned.
