Many people think of air raid shelters as the small Anderson shelters which were built in back gardens across the country. Join us at St Leonards Court Air Raid shelter for open house weekend to see this unusually large four roomed communal shelter which included sleeping quarters, lighting, heating and even chemical toilets. It is a very well preserved example of its type which we hope will soon be used as an educational resource for future generations.
