To restore the former Nuclear Monitoring Post in Aberlemno to its former glory for the whole community!

About the project

Myself, Lachlan Macleod, and my friend Ronnie O'Rourke, are both aged 16. We have a huge interest in the Cold War and have both lived in the village of Aberlemno for most of our lives. In January, we decided to take on the restoration of the former Royal Observer Corps Nuclear Monitoring Post. This is one of 1600 small bunkers sitauted 15 foot underneath the ground and these bunkers were the front line against the threat from the East of nuclear weapon attack. If this had happened, the crew in these post could warn the public in time to save the lives of millions. We both felt that the Cold War is very often forgotten about by so many people. With your support, we believe that we can carry on our restoration to bring the bunker to its former operating state and show people what really was going on. Very few people ever realised that these bunkers were scattered across the country, but we hope that we will be able to turn the bunker into a community visitor attraction and educate the public. This will not be possible without your support, as getting hold of the old equipment, buying consumables, advertising and just keeping the post in good, dry condition is a very costly business. We thank you very much for any support or donation to our project!
