were these nuclear bunkers built when they built the college 1950?
Westminster House is I think where the old market was in the 1970s
Just imagining if sirens went or how much warning there would have been and how to get from Hamilton square area to college in time before bombs dropped or are there other hidden safety places we don't know about

It was in a sad state. It was probably easier to get money for a new build (12 Quays) than to fix up Borough Road.

" nuclear bunkers built when they built the college 1950?"

The question or thoughts Derek is what other public building (still standing) was built about the same time and was owned by Birkenhead corpy,a building which is big enough to hold a bunker,there is one but the last time I was in the building the blast doors had been removed and it was being used for offices,can't tell you where as it might be still classified as secret. laugh

Principal in 1952-54, and probably from the beginning was C.V.Vinten-Fenton. Certified proof on my ONC!

Don't know what was there originally but by the 1940's it was the Plaza car park.
