Anderson Shelters

This site contains information about surviving World War II Anderson bomb shelters, and about the design and construction of such shelters.

Please follow the links on the right for information about the shelters' history, and their clever - very strong and durable - design.

You can also see photos of shelters that have survived to the present day - approaching 80 years. And there is information about some shelters which have been re-used as garden sheds etc.

You can also read helpful advice from those who have refurbished or rebuilt their shelters.

Check out this Marketplace if you would like to acquire some corrugated iron, or if you have some that you no longer need.
