Hey pefkos,I believe the bunkers in Bramley are at the bottom of Pollard Lane, I never actually been there myself but my information is credible. I practically live at Woodhouse Moor, so I will check out the bunkers there (if there are any). As for Eccup resovoir, I did a google earth search and an interesting location came up.Would you happen to anything about Dean Woods in Morley??

There is a strange rectangular patch, in a field, near the junction of Leeds Road and Taylor Lane, near Barwick-in-Elmet. It was an observation post for the Royal Observation Corps. It is clearly visable on Google Earth.There is a collapsed WWII bunker in the middle of Armley Park. It is coverd in soil, and is not obvious straight away. As kids used to sit on it and pull bricks out.

There are only 10 types of people in the world -those who understand binary, and those that don't.

Dean woods is where Gidersome tunnel portal still exists. The Pollard lane place is pretty much out of bounds these days! It's cordoned off good & proper with security fencing!
