Mytholmroryd WW2 Air Raid Shelter - 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.

Mytholmroryd WW2 Air Raid Shelter


Situated near Halifax in West Yorkshire, well hidden in woodland and flooded with knee-deep foul smelling water...

This was by another LMS marshalling yard although much smaller. A local resident told the reporter for Subterranea, about how his father as a young teenager used to help the shunters collect stray wagons, jumping on loose wagons and braking them. Across the Pennines at Colne in Lancashire is a more skeletal one, allowing one to see how the pieces fitted together. It stands on the site of the old carriage sidings and sheds of a once large railway site at the eastern terminus of the old East Lancashire line (absorbed by the LMS Railway under the 1921 Railways Act). As in the case of Mytholmroyd, the output of the nearby cotton mills was the reason for the railway activity, and thus the need to protect key workers.
