Lindsay Allason Jones takes us inside a rare Second World War Wilmott’s Fortress Air Raid Shelter which played a part in the Secret Army’s defence of Britain. Discovered during a garden redesign in 2015, the shelter was excavated by a team from the University of Newcastle. The excavation also brought to light the unexpected role the shelter had played in the defence of Britain, having been used to listen to Uboat activity in the Channel via a radio installed in the shelter. The excavations were published in Current Archaeology Issue 332 (November 2015).
