Artillery battery

Artillery battery
ERSTA-batteri at Norrhamn on Öja. A four-story facility used during the cold war. 25 people lived and worked underground here 24/7. Supposedly it could withstand a nuclear blast. There to protect the inlets to Nynäshamn, Stockholm and Södertälje. In operation between 1977-2000. There are guided tours daily during the Summer. It will set you back 100SEK. Today this is a listed building.

Very good rock form now still the cannon camouflage as a tree branch and it would be perfect.

A good idea to preserve it and let people have a look. A full sized bunker here from that era is now a Cold War museum.
