    Bit or a major find this one, Devonport park lies a stones throw away from the countries most significant wartime dockyard (Devonport) Plymouth city council believed until recently there where two known shelters beneath the park, however to my knowledge id located either 2 or 3 (no access) and two where outstanding.....

    many hours where spent looking, and i believed they where long gone....although i knew where they were meant to be...... roll foward almost a year and workmen believed theyd uncovered a shelter (latefeb 09')

    A couple reccys later, a plan was made, scotty had a bit of car trouble and for a second the plan was going down the pan....but we nursed it along and with no messing we were stood deep undergound instantly transported back to WW2

    visited with sarah, scotty, underworld, and sadly we had a man down at the last moment (spikey) but he played a huge part so thanks again buddy!


    Ive been quiet on the urbex front for a while so hopefully this one will get me back on track....its a good one,

    enjoy!

    really enjoyed this one - shelter is in great condition, hopefully itll be opened to public/or resealed and not destroyed....

    maybe the "two" missing shelters were really just one spilt in two halfs (public and forces) but just maybe theres one outstanding.........
