Bear in mind that from its construction in the 1950s to being sold off by the government in the 1990s this place was secret - so you may have a little difficulty in finding it....... Our satnav told us that we'd reached our destination just...More

Thank you very much Ralph P. Your heart warming story about your frisky rabbits has reassured me that my ferrets will be well catered for. If you visit again we could arrange for our animals to have a play date.
