    Default Stanley Park wartime shelters

    Hi there.

    My mum was in Liverpool during the second world war and told me that she used to go to the shelters in Stanley Park during air raids. I have been trying to find out where in the park they were located and if there is still any evidence of them. Anyone have any knowlege of them?

    Cheers.

    Hi Roberto,welcome to Yo!
    I've been around Stanley park,fairly recently,but haven't seen any remaining evidence of air-raid shelters!? They are probably long gone,but there might be some info' on these, around somewhere!I'll have a look!

    Just had a quick look,and,apparently,there was a shelter under the palm house,which is probably still there?There were also barrage ballons moored in the park !

    Yes, there is some kind of basement to that palm house - maybe the remains of the old shelter.

    they dismantled the palm house ,built a cafe underneath & then rebuilt the refurmished palm house on top so I don't think the air raid shelters would still be there
