Dodge hill was named after the family Dodge, the same ones who moved to America and made Dodge auto mobiles and also the namesake for Dodge city.

The shelter that is here is carved out of the red sandstone and is one of three in the Stockport area (they all survive, but Chestergate one is a public attraction - I am already on the hunt for Brinksway for the next trip over the hill). These tunnels took upto two years to carve out starting in 1938/1939.

Visited with CCM and our thanks to BF for assisting with the location for me.

Those beds are amazing - really intrigued how they were fixed together

Bolts mate, very simple construction tbh.

Update, I have been told Brinksway is definitely a no go :( But I have found another shelter which is totally different, but the weather has put a stop to that now.
