News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

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.
