Title: Air Raid Shelter, Ellington Girls School, Ramsgate
Post by: HERB COLLECTOR on March 13, 2015, 21:04:51
The underground shelter is thought to date to the end of the First World War and saw extensive use during the second. It was discovered in April 2010 after the school had been demolished to make way for a housing development. The shelter has now been resealed.
