Bidston Hill Deep Shelter/Tunnels

Hahaha not so big boy, I decided to go and waste some time after all ;)

(In all seriousness, it must have taken some real effort to crack this)

____________

Some Shizzle:

In 1941 there were proposals for two deep shelters, endorsed by the Civil Defence Emergency Committee

One such shelter was Bidston Hill, completed in 1943 the project had cost a staggering £48,006

950 tons of sand were removed from the tunnels which were blasted with explosives

Finished by hand a series of tunnels 7ft wide and 6ft 6in high with an arched roof were constructed

Although it never saw the scale of use it was intended for, tickets do exist and people did shelter under Bidston

There were 2,213 bunks and 793 seats, as well as a canteen, staff dormitory, toilets, medical aid post and a ventilation shaft/emergency escape hatch

Media attention shifted to Bidston in 2009 as officers searched for Gary Finlay, who was wanted in connection with a brutal stabbing

POLICE used diggers to excavate tunnels and air raid shelters in Bidston in their hunt for the murder suspect who had allegedly used the place as a hideout



____________________

It was promptly sealed by the authorities, then became 'open' briefly in 2010


Having missed the boat by a matter of weeks on this, I had since made a couple of re-visits to attempt a way in

With no luck despite numerous digs etc, I literally wrote it off until I saw a recent report...


After having spent a couple of hours down there, Leaf made his way to the entrance and all I heard was "Ojay it's sealed!"

WTF?

Seriously whilst we were down there, some tard had decided to 'seal' us in, with some effort from Leaf we managed to break free, just!

I'll give it less than a week and a metric fuck tonne of concrete will be thrown at it, and probably sealed for good :banghead


Many of the original features have vanished over the years, as the local chavs/pikey's have had their day in here graffing it up and smashing it to smitherines :wanker
