Default Dodge Hill Air Raid Shelter, Manchester - 24/09/10 - 26-09-2010, 19:35

Visited with Ojay, Woodburner, Doc P, and AEB.

After a fail trying to get into some nearby bunkers, we all headed over to Dodge Hill for a mooch, this was a well funny explore

Dodge Hill Air Raid shelter was mined out by hand by the Stockport Air Raid Precautions Committee in 1938, in preparation for World War 2. The shelters could hold 3,000 people in the event of an air raid, and as most of the tunnels look similar it's like a bit of a maze inside.

There are still loads of beds down there, and even some original toilets from the war.

Thanks to Woodburner for bringing the fluoro lights, awesome for lighting

The metal plate at the end is a cover from where they cut the tunnel in half to make way for the M60




Cheers doc p for being the Mesh Bitch












Old bogs








This took about 10 attempts thanks to everyone coming out with funny comments / stupid noises / laughing


Cheers guys for an awesome explore

Tidy shots fella!

This was one of the most lolworthy explores i've been on in a while, took ages to get the group shot due to people cracking up

LOL at Ojay's hat!

Anyway, some of mine.













Cheers,

WB.



Whip them bullets!

i wouldnt worry to much we never run into any, i and id assume they would more than likely leave or hide if they heard voices, i doubt they would want any sort of conflict.
