Civil air raid shelter, Lymm
Photos of this have been posted on here before. Way back in the 70's/80's we used to go in here with candles and tins of McEwans Export. Photographing other stuff nearby recently so called in to get some photos for the DoB database. Didn't seem to get as wet as they are now and the roof is noticeably deteriorating. Happened to be wearing wellies when nearby last week so went in and took a few more photos.
