I can't find out too much info on this.
This deep shelter was built for the marines, with entrances in the now gone Melville Barracks and also just inside the Dock Road perimeter wall of the barracks. Built on two levels, the lower level was accommodation with double level bunks. The upper level was admin offices, plant rooms and a casualty clearing station.
It's all about the entrance/exit on this one!
After researching up on this, and confirmation I was right with the exact location, I headed there with non-member, john. We arrived in the area and after a short chat on how best to get in, we decided to just go for it! It worked!
On entry, and down some reasonably good condition stairs we found ourselves walking through some incredibly clean and untouched tunnels complete with sleeping bunks, almost all of them intact and still chained to the metal framework, which in turn still has the original paint on.
After a good walk round the whole lower level we headed up what used to be a staircase, but all except the metal bannisters have long rotten away! It was a good climb up, and totally worth it because the upper level is just as clean and impressive as the lower.
It's brilliant to see a tunnel system like this that hasn't been ruined by graff and vandalism.
Enough rambling,
Enjoy the pics.
