Me and man gone wrong visited several deep level shelters a few deep level shelters a few years back. Thanks to grom for the tip offs, it was much appreciated. This was a bit different to the other tunnels we have been in as its part caves built next to a quarry which is still in use and you could virtually walk into it from the rear tunnels. The layout is similar to other deep level shelters with parallel tunnels. The tunnels were first bored out in the First World War to test a machine for boring out tunnels on the western front. It was planned to be used with the intention to protect locals from the Zeppelin attacks, but never actually saw any use.then later on in the Second World War, and could house 1,350 people.

It's one of my favorite local shelters, so unique to anything else in the area. You got a nice set of photos there. They've now secured both the tunnels at the large junction which is a shame.

Thank you very much. I ain't seen many shelters down there but I agree this is so unique and was my favourite. I did hear it's been blocked off now which is sad to hear.
