Brinksway Air Raid Shelters 25th June 2008

Filed under: Underground — j3bu @ 12:00 pm

Built in 1938 by Stockport’s Air Raid Precautions Committe as Britain prepared for the second world war, they were chipped out of the natural sandstone in the area in order to provide basic shelter, toilets and sleeping arrangements for the people of stockport during prolonged bombing.

The Shelters go on forever, it’s very easy to get lost down there. The air is close and the sandstone walls brush away with a simple touch.

Brinksway is much less preserved than the nearby Dodge Hill beds no longer remain in tact due to vandalism.
