    I have seen nothing on this site about any underground WW2 shelters in Richmond Park, London.
    After seeing the coulsdon & epsom downs type sites I suspect there is probably some kind of underground shelter complex below a site in Richmondn park, london, if anyones interested I can get shot of the manhole type cover in the place I think it might be, the ground in the immediate surrounding area seems raised to form a hump.
    If anyones interested I can get a photo & give the location, hope it might be of interest to some of you, I am not an urbex by the way, just find this a great site.

    PS
    I just uploaded this shot of the manhole type cover when I was passing nearby.

    Yes I know that one, it's conspiciouous at ground level close to a coup[le of walking routes.
    The area I meant is appx 250-300 metres south of that on the other side of the road which exits the park at Star & Garter military hospital & about 100 metres or less from the White House car park. They are below ground level & unless you walk within a few meters of the 2 hatches your likely to miss them, the instillation area is below ground level.

    The shelter may have been for the anti-aircraft gun crew positioned around about here

    The park was used for POWs near the end of the war and many were held there for years after the war ended.
