> Trafford Town Hall Shelter đź“Ť

When Trafford Town Hall had a new extension in the early 1980s a large, controversial and rather shallow bunker was included in the construction. Although it was designed for non-peaceful threats it was in the meantime used by the emergency services and as a CCTV control room. By 2011 it was a flooded abandoned basement of the demolished extension which was being replaced by a more modern building.

You can see photographs of the bunker being explored in Skyliner’s article Beneath Trafford Town Hall and in The Manchester Evening News’ Nuclear bunker that had Trafford town hall chiefs at war is uncovered.
