Such an incredible historical resource. This shelter and museum should be experienced and appreciated by all - young and old. The shelter is situated beneath a school playground. The Take Shelter experience brings to life what the school children and local community would have endured during a an air raid in the 1940s. It's in remarkable condition, and filled with fascinating artefacts, authentic photographs and video documentaries. It really is an interactive, multi-sensory, inspiring and life-changing history lesson.
I'm very happy to support a local project that reminds us all of our history - I don't believe we should glorify war, but we must remember what happened. My father's gas board job (before being called up) meant he had to attend fires/bombed houses on the night of the Sheffield blitz to make the gas supply safe. It must have been dangerous and frightening.
Wow! I remember the air raid shelters at both grandparents houses in the Midlands when I was a kid. We should never forget these terrible wars and what was done to protect ordinary people
