Good find there fella, I stumbled across a blog on the same shelter a few days ago, apparently, students pitched a tent over the top in order to excavate it, lol. Theres evidence to suggest that these shelters are on all communal ground, just check google earth for rectangular, raised grass mounds. Found one on Wortley rec, (and pretty much every other park in Leeds) but the entrances are either well hidden or obliterated........

Camping trip anyone? :lol:

Here ya go, Mex, Its about halfway down the page, but the pics take a while to load, so the page might jump around a bit. You'll know when youre close, theres a Pink Floyd music vid just above it....


Enjoy! :thumb
