The Prospect Local History Group invites you to a public tour of the Prospect Air Raid Shelter. The tour will be held on Sunday, 5th February 2023 from 2.00pm to 4.00pm. The shelter was built in 1942 during the darkest days of the Second World War. This historic area has display panels telling stories about the building of the shelter. You will have the opportunity to tour the interior of the shelter and learn how our civil defence was planned.
The gardens commemorate those who served in the war and there are panels with stories of local people who were involved in the war. A beautiful mural highlights the efforts of locals.
Please note that there are steep steps to climb for the tour of the interior and please use the handrail. Also, closed footwear is essential.
The tour is free, however, a donation to meet administrative costs is appreciated. Bookings are essential. For more information and bookings, visit their Eventbrite website.
The Prospect Air Raid Shelter is located at Willcox Avenue, Prospect.
