    Wigan is one of those places that is scarce of many places to explore, so when you get told about abandoned air raid shelters underneath an extremely public place that you have been to many times, you know you have to venture underground.
    I have been told that these shelters stretch pretty far underneath Wigan but with the twisting hallways and long many corners we didn't want to get lost down there.

    Myself being quite claustrophobic, I was quite welcoming to this sign.

    I live down the road from these and have been a few times. If you get scared follow the arrows. eventually you'll come to dead ends. The arrows lead back to the entrance.

    Show me the drain and I'll show you this haha. I want to get into drains but my derping friends don't.
    Also if you're planning to see this, get your skates on. There has been police activity because some moron posted it all over a Wigan FB group. And it's attracted a lot of attention.

    If you think the shelter is claustrophobic then you'd hate the drain :D
