Nuclear Bunker For Sale On eBay

Posted: Updated:

Nostalgic for Cold War hysteria? Now may be your chance to relive the glory days and own a terrifying piece of history with the purchase of a nuclear bunker in Northern England.

The bunker, currently for sale on eBay and reaching almost $30,000 in bids so far, was built by Britain's Royal Observer Corps in 1959.

In the event of a nuclear war the inhabitants would have lived underground and measured the aftermath of a nuclear fallout. Following the demise of the Soviet Union the bunker was decommissioned in 1991.

From the eBay advert; "Set in a stunning location with glorious views. Your own nuclear bunker within a plot of land and much original equipment."

"The bunker can continue to be used as limited living accommodation for short periods or adventure holidays," the seller added.
