    I've not been underground for 5 days and was starting to get the shakes, my eyes had adapted to being above ground and my skin was no longer translucent so I had to find somewhere dark and cool to hide from the midday sun As I was in Stockport I decided on Brinksway deep level shelter...

    London Road air-raid shelter, Portsmouth - (Visited 2010) 2013

    Built in the chalk for the citizens of Portsmouth in the event of an air-raid during WWII, it's easily the best air-raid shelter i've visited, a true time capsule of which i can't convey the feelings that were stirred inside or how oppressive it might have felt back in the day. But armed with a...

    Dodge Hill Air Raid Shelter, Stockport - July 2013

    I had intended on going down a couple of drains but the torrential rain had put an end to my plans and left me in Stockport with nothing to do. I've never been happy with my pics from here and I'm still not happy with the pics from the old entrance. [CENTER] There is now a sleeping bag and...

    St Margaret's Z-Rocket Battery Shelter, Dover - April 2013

    Now home to the local pigeon population this small deep shelter was built to protect troops of the nearby Z-Rocket from incoming axis bombs during WWII.

    Lydden Spout Plotting Room & Deep Shelter, Dover - Mar 2013

    In another round of re-visits, we decided to pop our heads into the Lydden Spout plotting room and deep shelter as they are only a short distance from each other. Like all the others dotted along the clifftops at Dover, this was built as part of the gun battery that used to be on top of the...

    South Forelands deep shelter 1, March 2013

    There's loads of these dotted around the Dover area. This one is one of the better ones in my opinion, and is one of the least reported so it would seem, mainly because it can be tricky to find if you don't know where it is (where as some of the others are easy to just stumble across) They were...
