Plymouth: Urban explorer looks inside Mount Wise Nuclear Bunker

An explorer has shared eerie images showing the inside of an abandoned nuclear bunker.

Known as Urbanexboi, I have visited the abandoned site of Mount Wise Nuclear Bunker in February.

The bunker, which can be found in Plymouth, has been abandoned for more than a decade but is in surprisingly good condition considering it hasn’t been used for many years.

It is thought to have enough space for hundreds of people and is littered with old phones and ancient signs from a bygone era.

The 27-year-old urban explorer said: “I think you could easily fit 200 or more people inside the bunker.

“My favorite part of being able to explore the abandoned bunker was seeing all of the old signs and items, such as wind up phones, that had been left there.

“I have previously had a tour of the abandoned bunker many years ago as they were closing up operations.

“It was strange then but to now see it empty with no staff or security at the entrance to check credentials was even more surreal.”

The structure is thought to have been empty for more than 10 years and has suffered some damage inside by vandals.

The invasion of Ukraine by Putin makes the shelter all the more poignant.

And the explorer reckons the MoD may want the bunker back if the war were to escalate.

“The bunker itself is in good condition considering it’s been empty for over 10 years, although a few rooms have sadly been trashed by people who have been inside.

“It wouldn’t surprise me if the Ministry of Defense took over the premises again if things escalated.”

The Mirror told yesterday about another nuclear bunker which had been put on the market by a property agent.

The Cold War hideaway has been put on sale for £25,000.

The underground hideaway was built five meters underground in 1961 to protect against any likelihood of an attack

The bunker in Brundall, Norfolk, it is fitted with an earth bonding system to guard against electro-magnetic pulse from nuclear explosions

During the 1960s, 1,560 such bunkers were created – but they weren’t cheap, and cost as much as an average terrace house to build.

Property sellers say this bunker is “mint condition” and for a £25,000 investment, has space for three people.

The bunker is listed by Unique Property Bulletin, which sells unusual properties from a variety of off-beat sources, the sellers said: “UKWMO Brundall is located in Norfolk, approximately 118 miles from London.

“Situated in greenfield countryside, surrounded on all sides by arable farmland.

“Most bunkers were built on high ground so their ground zero cameras would have panoramic views of the horizon.

“This plot is no exception and benefits from a very pleasant view of surrounding unspoilt rural East Anglia.

“This bunker survived the civil defense cutbacks of the mid 1960s when half the original number were closed, many now having been demolished.”
