SOLD OUT

Join expert Mark Selwood on a rare opportunity to visit one of the longest Second World War tunnel complexes in Britain. The site comprised both a wartime air raid shelter for employees of the aircraft maker Shorts, as well as an underground 'Shadow Factory' facility where manufacturing could continue unimpeded even through the heaviest raids of the Blitz.

This event has challenging access; there are uneven floors, knee-high walls, enclosed spaces and low lighting. Please wear sturdy footwear, waterproof clothing and also bring a torch with you. Please note there are no toilet facilities at the site.

This event is sold out.
