Creepy – a nuclear bunker in Manchester city centre

- - Uncategorized

This afternoon I was filming a video tour of Manchester's architecture for the forthcoming all-new VisitManchester.com when the tour guide showed me this – a nuclear bunker.

Built in 1952 in the early stages of the Cold War, it remained an official secret until 1967. Now it's a creepy relic of a time when the threat of imminent annihilation was very real. You can find it on the south end of George Street, off Princess Street.
