Now home to the local pigeon population this small deep shelter was built to protect troops of the nearby Z-Rocket from incoming axis bombs during WW2. There was two main entrances down into the shelter and one emergency escape exit. All in all, a great little splore, one of many in the area.

Un-lined section which leads to the emergency escape exit.

Main tunnels are lined with steel girders braced with corrugated steel sheet.

The original timber and plywood lining still remains, although damaged and decomposing.
