Hi All
Does anyone have any recollections of some sort of bunker system on the field at the Bebington end of Levers Causeway. I remember playing in a series of half buried tunnels and grass covered bunkers around the late 70's. I cannot say 100% it was there but it is my best guess, it is now a farmers field, I've looked at old maps and can't see any evidence of buildings there?
Thanks
Paul

Don't know why this link isn't clickable, but it covers the subject. What you remember, as do I, was a radar station. It was abandoned, pretty well intact, at the end of the war.
Just copy and paste the link.

It was used by the Royal Observer Corps in the 1960's, reason I know this was a few friends were in the ROC and had mates in the AFS (Auxilary Fire Service) and the local AFS engine was always parked by the buildings when they were on parade, cup of tea time was still a fashion and no mobile phones meant checking in at the local tk (telephone kiosk to see if you were needed when checking hydrant pressures).

We used to play there as kids,we used to jump from roof to roof,we called them the air raid shelters back then. I never had the bottle for the big jumps, they where still there in the mid Eighties,top of the Mount Estate.

Would this be linked to the pillbox by the side of the road from Storeton to Brimstage?

I often see a tanker parked in the entrance to the aforementioned field,with hoses running through the gate and into the field itself.I wonder whether there may be some kind of storage tanks there.

Interesting: there would probably have been water/fuel storage tanks when the site was operational. Next time, see if you can see any information on the tanker.

There was a tanker there as I drove past this lunchtime, it was from United Utilities. There was a hose out, but it went to a manhole (fresh water hydrant maybe?) in the roadside grass verge, not into the field
