Ok this place is a time capsule it is amazing with hidden treasures all over. My bit of advice is check in every nook and cranny and you will be amazed at what you will find. Sorry about all the pictures but this is going to be resealed VERY soon.

Very, very neat explore. Thanks for posting those, Alias. Shame it's going to be re-sealed, but glad we got to see your pics before it is and at least it'll continue to be preserved. :)

Probably the best example of an 'abandoned' air-raid shelter I've ever seen. That's incredible. I really hope it is sealed, fast.

Cobland, otherwise known as Derbyshire lol.
That place looks amazing, so much stuff from the 1940's still left there lying around. Definitely a time capsule. Plus, never seen a sign with a children's recreation area before. Brilliant.

Excellent pics.

Wow that is fantastic! It's not often I hope somewhere gets sealed up ASAP but this one I do. It needs to be kept like it is!

LOL!

You old cynic. As if hoards of people would suddenly descend on Portsmouth and start populating the int0rwebz with tens upon tens of forum threads featuring photographs of old signage and their names written with torchlight . . . Yeah, at least they won't have to bring in barriers and a turnstile. :p

lol yeah there was an influx of visitors to the shelter however this is a good thing. the council were phoned the moment someone damaged the sealed entrance as the old coffin dodging local parks in front of the entrance and saw it the day it occured. So it was nothing to do with explorers visiting. It needed documenting so we did.
