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 a sort of morbid fascination, or logically analysing the modes and functionally of the remaining fragments of architecture. This blog is the stage 1 of 'Urban Exploration' but I have to emphasise, if you visit these places and tempted to gain access..I wouldnt advise it unless you seek permission from the appropriate authorities.

Air Raid Shelter, Luddenden Foot

The main entrance off Danny Lane, Luddenden foot..

Entrance 1

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 close 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.
