I have a secret nuclear bunker – people offer me £30,000 for a space in case Putin launches World War Three | The Sun

A MAN who owns a secret nuclear bunker has said that people have offered him £30,000 for a space in case of World War Three.

Mike Parrish, 76, from Brentwood, Essex, is all set for a long stint in the bunker in the event of a catastrophic nuclear fallout between global powers.

The survivalist is duly prepared with "water buried under there" as well as "tinned food" and even a "sewage system".

Mike bought the former Government "secret nuclear bunker" in 1994 and runs it as a museum.

The farmer said that post 9/11, some people had started offering £30k for a space in the bunker.

And with Putin waging war on Ukraine and the threat of potential nuclear fallout rising once more, Mike said people are now contacting him again.

However, Mike said only a wild offer would make him open his doors to the public.

Speaking to the Express he said: "So now we have the Ukraine… and we had 15 people [asking for a space] this time.

"But of course, I've learned that I say 'well, if you've got 500,000 in liquid assets, we will talk to you.

“On 9/11, I had over 200 people… part of the deal was that in those days, we said for £30,000, we will guarantee your space, down in the bunker here for 10 years.”

He said that a post nuclear strike stint would probably mean over a decade underground, something people don't seem to understand.

"You are going to be down here for 10-15 years, you're going to want lots of food," he added.

"People are superficial, you know, they still think you go down underground, come up [the] next morning and carry on working – you won’t.

"If there is that sort of thing [a nuclear strike], and you're going to be underground, and you're going to be down there for as long as it takes."

Just 29 miles from Downing Street, the Essex farm was ideally located to be the Government’s headquarters if the country was engulfed in radiation.

It would be occupied by the Prime Minister and senior state officials, who would run the country from underground, if Britain had suffered a nuclear attack.

Mike added: "Under the threat of compulsory purchase [the Government] took this 25 acres in the middle of the farm, bulldozed the hill away, built the bunker, put it back, and then we farmed over it so the Russians wouldn't know it was here."

Incredibly, despite having access to a nuclear bolthole, Mike’s wife told him she won’t be moving down there if the worst happens.

He said: “My wife, for example, wouldn't come down here. There’s nothing worse than being down here for six months, with not knowing much.

“And so she's in the camp that would like to go and stay outside and see what's what.”
