Air Raid Shelters, Stockport

Air Raid Shelters
Restored Air raid shelters with facility for 6,500. Now thats one heckuva size air raid shelter!
I am not sure there is anything quite like this attraction with nearly a mile of tunnels set built to protect the people of Stockport. Be prepared to be entertained with old war stories ....be prepared to be shocked at how they got back to basics...and even under the basics...unless you dabbled in the black market.

Profile Description

Stockport Air Raid Shelters lets you experience life as it was during a ‘black out’ in war torn Britain. A labyrinth of tunnels under part of the town centre provided shelter, and a way of life, for families from Stockport and roundabout, through the dark days of the Blitz.

The Air Raid Shelters have been imaginatively restored to give visitors the feel of the era and struggle that Britain was facing.

This network of tunnels, nearly a mile long, was hewn out of the red sandstone hills on which Stockport stands, to provide air raid shelters for 6,500 during the Second World War.

You can explore this underground network and experience the way of life beneath Stockport’s streets – fitted with electric light, wooden benches, bunk beds, wardens’ post, a first aid post and a 16-seater toilet!

Come and experience life as it was during a ‘black out’ in wartime Britain and experience the sights and sounds of the home front.

Opened in 1939, the shelters were the largest purpose-built civilian air raid shelters in the country designed to provide shelter for up to 6,500 people.
