everyones probably seen these many times before but i Popped in here yesterday on the way back from visiting deepdene deep shelter but there's already a new report on that so thought id post up a few pics from my 2nd explore. had been down here before but the mrs wanted too see it so went for a revisit.

bit of info:

coulsdon deep shelter was built on the grounds of the cane hill asylum around the time of ww2, it was one of four shelters which surrey council had built, After the war Cox, Hargreaves and Thomson, Limited who specialised in the manufacture of optical devices – mainly lenses for huge telescopes purchased the shelter. they left the shelter due to damp issues and corrosion and the shelter was then purchased to be used as a garage but with the same issues happening again left and the shelter was finally sealed up by surrey council.

nice little explore but the same as deepdene a fair bit of asbestos laying about.






















thanks for looking

Alan.
