Visit Our Anderson Shelter

We have a new visitor attraction that has been added to the museum. It is a genuine Second World War Anderson Shelter which we have reconstructed  in the garden.

The shelter was donated by the 'Britain at War' magazine and has been carefully put together by staff and volunteers.

Part of the garden where it is located has also been set aside for a vegetable garden which has been landscaped to reflect one used during the Second World War, to give visitors as real sense of what life was like in a garden at that time.

Our picture shows Alistair, the Museum Assistant digging for victory?... or Australia?
