Heritage Open Day 2: Air Raid Shelter

The sheer numbers of people wanting to see the air raid shelter meant a loss of flexibility in terms of how one went round it, but it was a very interesting experience. At one point they turned the lights out and gave us the sound effects to make it seem like a raid was taking place, which was a nice touch.

I hope that my photography gives a good feel of what those tunnels must have been like when they were full of people sheltering from a real air raid.

on leaving the shelter my next target was the Mason’s Temple which is inside the Dukes Head, a stones throw from the air raid shelter – watch this space and meanwhile enjoy these pictures…
