    After wanting to get into this place for years the chance came about and we lept at it. Apart from one of the shafts getting breached accidentally by builders in 2008, this place has been sealed for 30 years. No one has ever done a report on the place or photographed it properly until this week.
    Myself, Trancentral, Rox and a couple of non members where not lucky enough to be the first in but we where not far behind.

    This place was built round the same time as the Bidston Hill shelters but was built to hold a lot more people. Due to it being sealed for so long, it has many original features and has not been destroyed by generations of chavs.
    One bad thing about the place is that it contains the most amount of Asbestos I have ever seen in my life. Some rooms where full of large sheets of it just stacked up and there was a fair bit broken on the floor. This place is nasty.

    The corridors where all marked with big letters so I am not sure what these smaller ones meant.

    This was the canteen counter. You would not want anything from there now. it is used to store loads of asbestos sheets!.

    Looking up one of the shafts. There is a level at the top of these ladders with, what was a ventilation fan then another two ladders up to the concrete cap.

    Door of Death!. This door which appears to consist of 80% Asbestos is the door to a small generator room. The generator is still in there but my photos of it turned out rubbish. You can see part of it through the door.

    Inside one of the toilets. They seemed to be everywhere.

    That is all. Thanks for looking.

    That is officially superb mate, I like it a lot. Like you say, it's in good condition and the signage has survived well.

    It was do-able around 2008 if not before, just it was kept off the radar by the Wirral lot ;)

    Absolutely brilliant, I too have been waiting on this place to open up, so I was really grateful for the Chance, sadly my lens farted and shit itself half way through the visit so didnt get too many pictures but just walking around this place was fascinating and I was really impressed with the floor paving but the roof is shocking in parts....ace pictures man :thumb
