Visited with @Xan_Asmodi on what would've otherwise been a day spent looking at the outside of buildings.

We had originally planned to spend a day in Liverpool checking out some leads and pints, until I got a message from Xan the day before simply stating "Tranmere shelter is open". We didn't have much luck with our original plans so after a couple of pints and the two of the finest spoons sirloins, we headed over the water to see what all the fuss was about.

The history of this site has been pretty well covered in other reports, the shelter was dug into the sandstone of Holborn hill approximately 80 feet below the surface. It was built between 1940 and 1942 to protect up to 4,160 Cammell Laird workers in the event of an air raid, but never saw use as the threat of bombing had diminished by the time of its completion. After the war, the shelter was stripped as part of asset reclamation; however, some original features such as the signage remain.

Love number 10, very creative. The ceiling looks fantastic, sandstone always gives such a fantastic colour underground in the right lighting.

Well done!

Cheers man! I was amazed at how well the texture of the sandstone stood out being lit from behind.

Was a really good explore, mate. Always a pleasure failing with you!
Yeah man, great crack as always! Think we need to find somewhere deeper for our next fail :thumb
