    Finally I have a 28DL FIRST!

    I bring you London Road Deep shelter!

    One of the small entrances is open (just) and so i went for it.

    A Western escape route
    B Main entrance. This was concrete lined up to the blast wall, the only concrete lining in the whole shelter
    C Eastern escape route
    D Blast wall built of brick
    E Shelter wardens office
    F Canteen
    G First aid post
    H Toilets
    J Ventilation / rescue shafts
    K Emergency generator room

    The shelter is in good overall condition, fairly dry and not that trashed. All the fitted toilets remain, the partitions rotted. All bunks gone although found a pile of them. Emergency exits well sealed, up 5 15ft ladders.

    Other exits well filled, good blast wall at main like most others. Sinks and toilets still in, all the signs of the areas to help u find your bunk. Very big bunker this, uniform in size and the air was ok.

    Really glad to get a 28DL first!
