Welcome to the original web site for the Drakelow Tunnels.

EE have decided that they are closing the free webspace that we have had for 16 years from Freeserve.
We will therefore shortly be moving. If you wish to continue following this site please use the www.drakelow.org url
to find our new location. Hope to see you there.

There are several areas to explore, relating to the Drakelow underground factory,
RSG9 1960's nuclear bunker, RGHQ9 1980's nuclear bunker and other U.K. underground sites.

The information and images on this site are the result of over 20 years of research. They are shown here in their original location. If you find them elsewhere they have been illegally copied from here!

This site has evolved over the last 12-14 years. Using it is very similar to what it was always like trying to find info on Drakelow. You have to dig around a lot and often interesting snippets crop up where you least expect them!
