Air Raid Shelter, Luddenden Foot - Derelict Manchester:

Derelict Manchester:

A view of the hidden parts around the inner sections around the city centre of Manchester, UK and beyond . How you perceive these derelict sites could be morbid, yet exciting.

I was unable to obtain the full details, of the site, but someone told me the shelters were for the workers at the mill that was situated within proximity.
I was told  the location would have been a  prime target, as the factory produced components  for the War Department.
These structures contain  five entrances  that go down a series of five steps the internal dimensions are 30ft long x 10 feet wide, height..9ft. At an estimate I would say the shelter is only five feet underground, however, the structure is embedded into a small hill, along with  sections of stone walling on the exterior whether this was utilised as additional buffering.
