RAF BARNTON QUARRY – SECRET BUNKER EDINBURGH





A quick look around RAF Barnton Quarry. Barnton Quarry is a disused stone quarry in Corstorphine Hill, Clermiston, Edinburgh, Scotland. The site was used as a military command centre, and is now being converted into a museum.
Stone was extracted from the quarry until 1914. During the Second World War, the Royal Air Force (RAF) built a Fighter Command operations room in the quarry. In 1952, during the Cold War, this facility was expanded into a central coordination facility for radar stations throughout Scotland. The military authorities closed the site and in 1983 and transferred ownership to the local council.

The site was subsequently vandalized and damaged by fire. The site is now being cleaned and restored with the goal of creating a local Cold War museum and education centre. The project is being undertaken by volunteers, with funding from the owners of Scotland’s Secret Bunker, another disused bunker now run as a tourist attraction.
