OLD 2017 HEADLINES
During September 2017 we have changed the Unique Property Bulletin TO a slimmer, more internet friendly version. This has regular unique property updates every few days (eventually daily). These are now featured ON THE FRONT PAGE. We will include the regular Feature Articles with increasing frequency, once we have our new offices and employed staff up and running. For now the volunteers are concentrating on getting the new home of the Bulletin bought and paid for – with a HUGE amount of goodwill and support from our property-club members. Here is a glimpse of our new Unique Property Bulletin HQ…

Bonkers For Bunkers!
Thank You George, At The Sun
Example of An UKWMO Bunker Sold Via Unique Property Bulletin
For some reason we get plenty of bunkers to sell.
A short while ago we had an interesting chat with Mr George Harrison from The Sun newspaper about the huge and current popularity of ROC UKWMO underground nuclear bunker monitoring posts. George has been very kind and courteous in linking relevant source material back to Unique Property Bulletin. However, our website has gone a bit wobbly because of the large numbers visiting!
The Long Way Down – But What Accommodation Lurks Below?
Much appreciation to George for the name check and we anticipate the peak demand of visitors will abate soon and things will get back to normal with Bulletin download speeds as they should be. Though the fact so many folk are looking at these diminutive mole holes says a lot about the state of society and politics at this time.
Bulletin readers can see The Sun article: here.
Meanwhile our current updates and new listings are: here.
Also, if you do have a UKWMO underground bunker that you want to sell, we would be delighted to help. Unique Property Bulletin is not an estate agency, but a group of friends who love sharing details of unusual property on this not-for-profit website. If we are able to introduce buyer and seller, even for one of these diminutive Armageddon human mole holes, that would be an interesting adventure. Just call or text the Bulletin on 0793 557 2803 and we will make best efforts to assist.

For those Unique Property Bulletin readers unaware of these nuclear mole-holes, they are an enigma to us. What use do they now serve?
One of the owner’s of an UKWMO bunker that we helped to sell a while back answered a prescient question: What can you use these for? He had a young family and they camped on the site with a tent at weekends and holidays. If it rained, then the kids went below ground to the warm and dry bunker and had many great adventures over the years.
Further information on the history of these UKWMO bunkers is available: here.

Hot Picks & News Clips
After 25 years, 5 years and 4 years respectively, our three Bulletin volunteers are approaching burnout because of the large numbers of folk visiting this website. It is good so many people use our facility. To remedy the problem we are taking on 3 part-time staff members. This will help return the Unique Property Bulletin back to it’s normal self.
At this time, the three volunteers are having to cope with literally hundreds of telephone calls following a recent social media viral thing. Again this is good. But we ask readers to cut us a little slack until we get things back onto an even keel.
In addition, our Unique Property CLUB members have just spent almost a third of a million pounds on amazing projects – primarily the magnificent 39 acres estate and several buildings at the Noss Head Lighthouse compound. Many interesting things from that adventure will help the Bulletin to grow after this temporary few months sabbatical. For the time being, our three volunteers are needing to spend quite a bit of time up at the lighthouses and other projects. These three endeavours are a significant undertaking and are consuming much free time that we have. No complaints. It’s great. But more than once each volunteer, in turn has almost fallen asleep at the keyboard come 2am in the morning and only ¾ of the day’s emails have been answered!
So for a short while, we are simplifying the format of what you are reading here.
For the summer and until we get an Assistant Editor and a couple of staffers/freelancers in place, we will be running the site in an empirical format.
In essence, each Bulletin will include: a unique property photograph, a price and a weblink to the seller/estate agent.

Safety Backup Bulletin Website
For the first time in 4 years this website went offline for 93 minutes at around 2300 hours on 24 January 2017. This sort of thing happens to many websites big and small (here). So as to minimise any disruption for our readers, we run near identical websites on TWO separate webservices. One located in Austin, Texas and the other in Reykjavík, Iceland. This ensures that if one goes offline, the other will almost always be available. Double redundancy.
If at any time you find our website offline, try changing the suffix to our backup site. Type the ending with .org to .co.uk or vice versa. That should ensure you have continuity of access…
On the very rare occasion that either of our webhosting services experiences difficulty and you end up with a DNS page offline notice, the operation at two separate webhosting facilities should mean you are always able to access the Unique Property Bulletin. If you are thinking of starting your own website, especially in pursuit of your new unique lifestyle, we would thoroughly recommend you have a backup website on a completely separate webhost. It costs a little extra, but can ensure that the dreaded offline experience is mitigated in as much as can be reasonably enabled.
