Replica WWII OB to be built.

Recommended Posts

The National Trust at Coleshill (near Swindon) have recently received Heritage Lottery Funding to fund a replica WWII OB. The bunker will be built close to the remaining guardhouse and, on completion, the will be used for educational visits, taking pressure off the original OB which still exists on the estate. It is intended that the funding will pay for the materials, and the workforce will be voluntary. The aim is to build the bunker using techniques of the time, and in line with the original documents held in the national archive. It's anticipated that work will be carried out over several long weekend, the first hopefully being Easter. Churchill's Underground War will be leading the work and are looking for volunteers who can dig, or with basic building skills (brick laying, laying concrete etc). More information will appear shortly on the Churchill's Underground War website (http://www.churchillsundergroundwar.org.uk/replica.html), anyone who would like to get involved to volunteer please email us atchurchills_underground_war@yahoo.co.uk
