I'm running very low on time to post this one because of other stuff I gotta do so I'm just going to leave you guys with basic history and pictures. This site has been done numerously over the years so it shouldn't matter too much.

Brinksway Air Raid Shelter

Brinksway is one of three deep level shelters in Stockport, and was intended to be used by civilians. The tunnels were dug into the sandstone that the town is famous for, and it's not hard to find the many marks in the walls made by the workers' pickaxes. Work started on the tunnels in 1938 and the first set of shelters was opened on 28 October 1939. They were 7 feet wide and 7 feet high and had electric lighting and wooden bench seating, along with both male and female toilets. A warden’s post, a first aid store and a tool store were also provided. After the war, the tunnels were 'sealed' but it is clear that many, many people have been in since.

Although I'd heard these tunnels were inaccessible currently, we decided to check them out anyway whilst in Stockport and were pleasantly surprised once we noticed the access point. From then it was just a 'trying to remember different bits of graffiti so we didn't get lost' explore. As you will notice, some light painting turned out better than others, I just did the best I could with my torch.

Here's the link to my video. Although it was hard to record cinematics in these lighting conditions, I'm quite happy with how it turned out and I'll probably be doing more underground stuff soon:

Thanks for reading :)

First post and you're asking for access
Sorry but it really doesn't work like that

You could be a council worker looking to seal the site up for all we know
Post a few reports and pictures on the forum and people will be happier to share access details
Thank you
