We are building a new entrance

We are excited to announce that we are building a new entrance to the air raid shelter. This will create a more accessible way for us to share the shelter with a wider cross section of the community. The new entrance will replace the old cramped hatch access and metal ladder with a wider flight of steps with handrails.

This project is the fruition of more than 5 years of hard work from the Take Shelter team and we are thrilled to be sharing it with everyone. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us and visited the shelter – your help has made this happen!

Community Open Day, Sunday 11th September: We are opening up the shelter with the new entrance for the first time this autumn. Find out more about the event and how to book tickets here.
