After an hour of trying and failing to get into Carshalton Park shelter, @UrbanExplorer84 and I finally admitted defeat and made our way down to Coulsdon, hoping this one wouldn't be a bust too... It wasn't!!

After entering the bunker and shitting myself up multiple times thinking my echoing footsteps were coming from behind, which UrbanExplorer found hilarious, I pulled it together and managed to take a few pics.

A section of the bunker has roof support jacks which had clearly moved recently. Needless to say we did not spend long in this section.

Short History:
Coulsdon deep shelter was one of four proposed and built by Surrey Council, the others being at Epsom Downs, Epsom, and Kenley, to house the public during WW2 in case of a nuclear attack.

After the war ended the shelter was occupied by a lens manufacturing company, and later by Volkswagen to house their spares and equipment, some of which still remains today.

Old Map of the bunker.

The well documented reverse-engineered fridge/ac unit, which very strangely has a PAT tested sticker dated 2006.

Just wondering why you couldn't get in Carshalton Park Shelter? As of about Easter time it was simple enough if (and this is the big if) you knew where it is.
