  1. Paddock

    Paddock is the codeword for an alternative Cabinet War Room bunker for Winston Churchill's World War II government located in Dollis Hill, northwest London under the Post Office Research Station. It was constructed in 1939 but only rarely used during the war, with only two meetings of the War Cabinet being held there. It was abandoned in 1944. Paddock has had various, intermittent uses since but otherwise the site remains largely disused as it was when it was decommissioned at the end of World War II. The bunker is owned by the housing association responsible for the homes now occupying part of the former research station site above, and is open to the public two or three times a year, with guided tours provided by volunteers from the Subterranea Britannica organisation - see below.

Examples of paddock in a Sentence

  1. Jamie Chadwick:

    Walking up and down the paddock, obviously people were pitching to me 'today that was a bit dominant' but... we're all in the same cars and sharing each others' data and onboards, so especially in the dry it's going to be close... the longer tests we've done, you wouldn't believe how close it gets and that's all because we're all sharing each others' data.

  2. Patrick Dempsey:

    The racing is definitely the most dominant side. It’s always been that way, it’s my real passion and love, i love the community, the challenge of it emotionally and spiritually. I think it’s really important and I really love the camaraderie and the fellowship within the paddock from everyone involved.

  3. James Hilterbrand:

    To go from what was a high school rugby paddock to the Olympic training center in Colorado Springs is indicative of the level of professionalism that's come to the game, (USA Rugby) is no longer a sleeping giant as everyone wants to call it, it's woken up and it's happening – I think it's just going through breakfast at the moment.

  4. Ross Brawn:

    Weve tried for these in the past. Theres not many gentlemen in the paddock.

  5. John Sheahan:

    I personally don’t think we’re ever going to be satisfied with the why, said John Sheahan, a former sergeant and SWAT team officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. We're talking about someone who has never had a lot of friends, kept to himself, and had all the finances in the world to do what he was going to do. Since the shooting, The FBI and police investigators have interviewed hundreds of witnesses, including Paddock's girlfriend Mary Lou Danley. They also looked into his gun buying history, taken apart his computer and even sent his brain to Stanford University for detailed forensic examination. But in recent weeks, authorities have provided little to no insight into the status of their investigation. The FBI’s Las Vegas field office did not respond to Fox News ’ request for an interview while the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department declined to take part in one. When we have more information to provide, we will let everybody know, LVMPD Officer Larry Hadfield told Fox News. But John Sheahan warns there may never be new information to release. Police investigators want to give the public answers. It takes the monkey off your backs.
