The Bunker Cafe

By johnriley1uk  
Still in the Kingdom of Fife, there is a place so secret that there are road signs. Yes, it's Scotland's Secret Bunker. This shot is of the tea room, huddled deep in the complex, behind the great steel blast doors. It's an awe inspiring place; what would have been the hub of government planning if the worst were to happen in a nuclear war. Now, it's full of fascination and so clean and so well maintained I couldn't help wondering if it was still used in some even more secret way. There were two bunker cats wandering around, a strange intrusion of homely reality. They joined us as we had our cups of tea or coffee, no doubt ever hopeful. A great visit and a great experience to see this. I shot all my pictures in black and white as it somehow seemed to fit the mood of the place.

Another one I have always had on my "Visit List" Only about 40 miles from here but beyond my 1 house exercise slot!! A very clean looking room but thinking about it, how does any dust get in?

Dust is mostly dead skin cells we lose all the time, Ian. 😱 I've never been either, and it does seem interesting.

Good shot and narrative, John. Smile
