Anderson Shelters

Anderson Shelter in Stockwell, London

One of the best preserved Anderson shelters in London may be found in a beautiful garden in Stockwell. It was owned during the war by the two Misses Hitch, the unmarried daughters of renowned sculptor Nathaniel Hitch, who clearly decided to build a particularly strong shelter in an area that was all too likely to experience severe bombing.
