    Six of us Leicester lot recently went and took a look at this WW2 air raid shelter in Leicester. It was built for the use of a school, but is surprisingly large with loads of sections going off all over the place. Structually it is still in very sound condition, most of the concrete is undamaged and almost as fresh as the day it was made. The various sections were named after London streets and there was also plenty of old graffiti around. Afraid the pics are not that brilliant as only had a crappy compact on me, an enjoyable explore anyway.
