Not the same as the known surviving shelters. Google "trench shelter WW2" for full details. I hadn't come across them before, very interesting.

It looks like a trench shelter was not bomb proof,it looks like it could have been more for defense thank god we never had to use them.

I believe the odd bomb or two did fall on Cross Flatts Park though Sid.

Hi Fred I did not know that, i know there was some damage done in Leeds. I know there was bomb damage near the Woodpecker pub i was told they were after the gas holder near Quarry Hill flats i dont know if that was true or not, they seemed to know where the hot spots were.

Speaking only from my part of the world, Domestic Street copped a few as well as the Flaxtons.
Flaxton terrace is a definite as I remember playing in the bombed out area the house occupied, as a kid.

X roughly marks the spot with the more modern view shown above.
