Templeton Airfield Walk
Templeton Airfield can be walked & is an intriguing place to visit if you seek to find more about its military history. Most, if not all of the buildings have now gone from the airfield that made this an RAF base.

Templeton Airfield Nuclear Bunker
As the cold war came to an end in the 1990's, it probably had no other use for the military. It was auctioned off in December 2006 & currently used as a storage site.
This building has metre thick walls & steel shutters. It would be able to protect the occupants from a missile attack including a fallout, however, it would not be able to withstand a direct hit.
Walking Around Templeton Airfield
Care should also be taken whilst walking around the area. While Templeton Airfield is still in use, the airfield itself no longer active, so there will be a lot of growth around the airbase which can be muddy & slippery in the winter months.
