After trying to get into this place a few times I got a tip off that it was accessible again (i won’t post details). It won’t be open long as they’re already laying foundations to cover it up as shown in the photos. So if you’re planning on taking a look at get down their soon! Good luck

Well done for giving it a go and letting people (including me) know it was open again.
I joined the queue of mums, dads and small children all climbing down the ladders at the weekend.
In future maybe leave out all the fuzzy pics - you only really need a handful of decent ones to illustrate what's down there.

Yaah first post need to cut a few bad ones out. It’s an awesome place shame it’ll be gone again soon. They’d wired over the hole and dumped materials there so it will be getting sealed. That group exploring with fighters went blabbing to the echo, shame

As kids in the 60s, we used to explore these tunnels (and be chased by the local Constabulary). I remember gaining access and exit from what was a ventilation shaft on the hill, remote from the main entrances, and climbing down iron ladders past a large fan into the shelter proper. Immediately inside the main entrance was an office with 'Shelter Warden' painted on the door. Seating and sanitary fittings were largely intact and there was no graffiti. Seems times have well and truly changed!

Yep. The very same entrance. The fan is surprisingly still there. Alas it does appear the shelter has been used as a Birkenhead playground. Really is a great structure tho

Thanks Nathan. Seems as the fan was built to last! As intrepid teenage explorers, we were fascinated by the design, extent and what we thought was the intent of the place. This was in the days of the Cold War when Kennedy was facing off to Khrushchev, and the Russians regularly probed the UK's air defences over the North Sea. As naïve kids, we thought it was to provide shelter for the populace in case of a nuclear attack. on Merseyside. Thankfully the nuclear attack never eventuated so we were never put to the proof!

You've got Bidston, Tranmere and probably other underground stuff on the Wirral. None of it will stay closed forever, and it'll probably survive quite well whilst closed too.
