Stockport Air Raid Shelter ToursHistory brought to life in Britain’s biggest shelter

oatsy40 on Visualhunt / CC BY

When war came in 1939, the sandstone cliffs of Stockport, to the south of Manchester, were excavated to create Britain's biggest civilian air raid shelters. Visitors can wander through the corridors and learn what life was like for the 6,500 local residents who took refuge here during the height of hostilities. Audio guides tell the stories of some of these civilians, and supporters regularly give guided tours in costumes from the period.
