Thanks, Robert Emmerson and Griff King-Spooner for joining me on my Memories of St Christopher House facebook page. It feels a little less lonely there now! :-)

Anyone else interested in joining us to reminisce and share memories of working there in MoD or MoT or its successors, between circa 1959 and 2003, you will be made welcome!

Even if you didn't work there, you may have memories of the effects of working/living in the vicinity of that massive late 1950s structure that you may want to share.

The building was there for over 40 years, and thousands of staff will have worked there during that time. The facebook page is there for those who wish to to to share their memories.

I just found this 1952 aerial photo of Bankside power station and the CEGB HQ building under construction. Note the virtual absence of buildings on the site of SCH and its successor buildings!

Were there tunnels under SCH? When I worked there I was told there were MOD tunnels starting under the building, and I did go in the beginning bit of some kind of tunnels there but I don't really know now what they were.

Maartje, I've not heard of any tunnels,though I do have a vague recollection of some kind of sub-basement. Anyone else know?

You might want to join us over on the Memories of St Christopher House facebook group
