The Cold War Bunker on the estate...
Did you know there is a bunker under the grassy enclosures in front of Haddo House? You might have noticed the small building that houses the entrance, sitting behind a well-used bench. Look more closely and you'll spot the ventilation shafts dotted around the park, giving you an idea of the size of the building. It is huge, with 8 rooms including kitchen, scientific advisors room, signals rooms and bathrooms.

We know a little about the history of Camden Borough Control but what of it's future. Some local residents are keen to see the building restored and brought into community use.
What do you think should happen?
