Geocache Description:


This is one of a small series of caches along Stockports Heritage Trail. The full trail is well worth the walk and a map can be obtained from the Information Centre which is situated in the market place.

The Air Raid Shelters were one of the few air raid precaution tunnel systems built specifically for civilians in Britain and often accommodated over 7,000 people nightly. Locals called it the Chestergate Hotel. Mancunians came on the tram to get away from blitz in December 1940. The netwirk of tunnels is reported to be 1.5km long. The shelters are open to the public daily between 1-5pm and well worth a visit.

The cache is a magnetic nano above the shelter.
