This concrete underground air raid shelter is one of three, built beneath an Edwardian school playground at the onset of World War 2, and is one of the finest and best-preserved examples of its kind.
Developed as a museum over the past couple of decades, it now houses a fascinating collection of everyday objects and memorabilia of that era.
Exciting news of the discovery during resurfacing of the school’s playground revealed that the other two air raid shelter tunnels were not filled in as thought! One of which is structurally sound and the go-ahead has been given to fundraising to preserve what was found and open the tunnels for guided tours when the project is completed.
