Portraits in WW2 Air Raid Shelter



We'll start with the large building that we had failed at a few years ago. Today, the site wasn't alarmed. Whether they are still on, we couldn't tell because there were workers sealing the building up, so they might have been turned off for that.

Below ground level is the main attraction we had came to see. Everything went fairly smoothly until leaving when we almost dislodged a large rock that would have fallen and crushed one of our legs whilst slipping out. A close one but good to laugh about once you're in open air.

Here's the link to our documentary styled video of this exploration. We cover the building and the shelter's past, present and future through cinematics and narration:






Thanks for reading :)

Those portraits are something a bit special. Priceless even. Hopefully they are not destroyed when the building is moved on.

Must admit, when I read the title and saw the skylights, I did wonder how much good it would be as an air raid shelter!
