We're still looking for guides to help open the tunnels to the public, so if you think that you'd like to get involved, why not get in touch with us? We have written some volunteer role profiles to help you find out a bit more about what's involved.

Gentle conservation

Rusting history

We're now recording the interior of the tunnels before we start work on making essential repairs, we hope to show visitors the tunnels in their current condition, as they would have looked when they were abandoned.

Opening in 2015

We were able to purchase Fan Bay Deep Shelter and Sound Mirrors in 2012. We're now working on uncovering the tunnels so we can open them to visitors in summer 2015.

Sound Mirrors

We're working to uncover the sound mirrors next to the underground shelter at Fan Bay, removing the spoil that was used to cover them in the 1970's revealing these historic structures for all to see.
