Looking for underground bunkers for sale in the UK? You might not be the only one who wants a slice of the underground real estate pie.

It's surprising how many formerly secret nuclear bunkers and underground strongholds are put up for sell across the country from time to time.

During the Cold War, the UK was littered with secret bunkers, from small Royal Observer Corps posts to huge underground networks of tunnels capable of sustaining the whole government. Going back further, there was also ammunition stores and bunkers built for both world wars.

Today, while some of these bunkers have found new uses, many are left abandoned on care and maintenance books until the owner decides to hand it on.

Below are some British bunkers which have been put up for sale recently...

Abandoned since the 1980s, the bunker can safely house up to 4,000 in a totally self sufficient, blast proof, radiation proof bunker 1km long and 200 meters across, 100 feet below Corsham in Wiltshire.
