AlexRestoMan 0 Posted June 12, 2013 Report Share Posted June 12, 2013 Hi there, My name is Alex and I work on the Channel 4 series, The Restoration Man. Presented by the architect George Clarke, the programme follows new owners as they restore, convert and breathe new life into interesting historic and vulnerable buildings in the UK. As well as offering practical advice, George looks into the history of each building, why they were built and how they’ve evolved over the years within the local community. For our forthcoming series we are following the restoration of RAF Watnall underground bunker and are looking to find out as much information about the building and surrounding area from the time of its conception, to today. The bunker began its construction in 1938, but wasn't put into use until 1940, playing a key role in Britain’s war defenses The bunker is about 15 miles from Nottingham, located near Kimberly and Nutnall. We are trying to find out as much information about the bunker’s purpose, architecture, the people who worked there and the surrounding area. Perhaps you worked there? Perhaps you remember someone who worked there? Or maybe you just remember it from when you were younger? If you could be of any assistance in helping me gather information - or perhaps you could point me in the direction of a person, place or certain literature – then I would be very grateful. I appreciate any help you can offer and I look forward to hearing from you. RAF Watnall underground bunker at 140 Main Road, Watnall, NG16 1HA Many thanks, Best wishes Alexandra Burke | Researcher | Restoration ManAlexandraburke@tigeraspect.co.uk Tel: 0208 222 4141 Tiger Aspect Productions 4th Floor | Shepherds Building Central | Charecroft Way | London W14 0EE Quote Link to post Share on other sites
