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. There was two main entrances down into the shelter and one emergency escape exit. All in all, a great little splore, one of many in the area.​

Un-lined section which leads to the emergency escape exit.​

Wardens room/office, with the un-lined section in the distance.​

Main tunnels are lined with steel girders braced with corrugated steel sheet.​

Toilets.​

Steps leading up towards main entrance, now infilled with bricks and rubble.​

The original timber and plywood lining still remains, although damaged and decomposing.​
