Holbeach Royal Observer Corps Underground Monitoring Post

The Lincolnshire Heritage Trust was presented with an undamaged shelter close to Holbeach in southern Lincolnshire and willingly accepted it with the intention of safeguarding it for future generations. In 1955, the governing body at the time restructured the Royal Observer Corps (ROC), which had been disbanded after the war. During World War II, their primary responsibility was to detect and identify approaching enemy aircraft. However, their role changed to manning monitoring stations for nuclear bombs. Initially, these stations were located above ground, but over time, subterranean chambers were built.
