Battle of Britain Bunker

 

 

Battle of Britain Bunker

The No.11 (Fighter) Group Operations Room at RAF Uxbridge was responsible for planning and coordinating the air defence of London and South East England during World War II.   As well as bearing the brunt of the Luftwaffe onslaught during the Battle of Britain, the Operations Room was responsible for controlling fighter operations during the Dunkirk Evacuations and the Normandy Landings.

 

Today the room is shown exactly as it was on 15th September 1940, the day on which Winston Churchill visited and witnessed the conduct of the most significant day of the battle of Britain.

 

Although RAF Uxbridge closed in 2010, the Ministry of Defence have granted permission for the Bunker enclave to continue to be referred to as RAF Uxbridge.    Day to day support of the Bunker is provided by RAF Northolt.
