Original Stanton Air Raid Shelter

The museum is lucky to have an original Stanton Air Raid Shelter within the grounds. 

Steve has added a realistic sound track which starts with the alarm siren warning of an imminent air raid. Then there is the noise of bombs going off all around and eventually the siren giving the all clear. After that there are the noises of emergency vehicles which had bells ringing in those days, not the wailing sirens that we're used to today.

There are benches along the walls and it really gives the feeling of what it must have been like to spend hour upon hour in the dark and damp listening to the bombs falling and wondering if your house was still standing.

This shelter is reputed to have it's own ghost.
