STOCKPORT AIR RAID SHELTERS

DESCRIPTION + /

Stockport air raid shelters are a series of tunnels, almost a mile in length, excavated in the red sandstone beneath Stockport town centre. They were constructed during the Second World War to provide shelter for 6,500 civilians during enemy air raids. The complex was fitted with electric lighting, wooden benches, bunk beds, a wardens' post, a first aid post and toilets. The tunnels have been restored and are now open as a museum.
