    Piccadilly Station Air-Raid Shelter (Remains), Manchester


    Manchester Corporation issued it's first list of designated public air-raid shelters in August 1939, under the Civil Defence Act

    It was estimated that around 500 shelters would be required for 100,000 people

    3 such Second World War air-raid shelters once occupied space underneath the now Manchester Picadilly Station

    All owned by L M & S Railway they had a combined capacity of 1275 people



    Today much of the underground space is used as a car park and doubles up as the 'Warehouse Project'

    There is very little left of the shelters having had a mooch below street level the original entrance is sealed, with a further 2 sections bricked up and no longer accessible

    The only real features that remain are a Wardens Post, sealed Exit To Street Level, Ladies & Gents Toilets, remnants of Original Lighting and Signage


    Below the streets of Manchester....
