    This air raid shelter is thought to have protected the workers at a WW2 dispersed production site, Foxwarren, for Vickers-Armstrongs at the nearby Brooklands, Surrey.

    The site also has associations with the bouncing bomb, (which was developed at what is now Brooklands College), the Viking, Valiant and V1000 prototypes as it remained in use until the mid 1950s. Today only the hangar-like building survives nearby and has been the home of the Cobham Bus Museum, which is soon to move to the main Brooklands Museum site. Silvermere Lake (now part of the Silvermere golf course complex) is just South of the bus museum and saw some of the early catapault trials with small scale bouncing bomb models.
