    Well, this was a bonus, having a phone call from a relative while eating dinner telling me workmen had dug these up today whilst digging foundations for the new buildings that are under construction on the former school site (:()

    I don't have any history on these tunnels due to the fact i dont think their existence is recorded anywhere, the school had even been explored before!

    These are absolutely mint and all graffiti down there dates 1944.

    If anyone wishes to add history on the school/shelter then feel free! :thumb

    Visited with fortknox0, photographed with fortknox0, obscurity and maniac.

    Sorry about the image size, i dont know whats going on with them :(

    Interesting large shaft, one of two.

    As the shelters are having archeologists sent down there tomorrow (13th) i decided to leave them another little present aswell as our footprints in the otherwise perfect dust ;)

    Thats all, if you are intending a visit, do it in the next day or two, they are being filled!
