Where are Sheffield's nuclear shelters?

Recommended Posts

I think central government ones were abandoned as nuclear weapons became much more powerful, because they would have to be so deep that they would be next to impossible to construct, and then after a nuclear strike, the underground rock would have shifted so that they would be impossible to escape from, entombing the occupants.


The central government shelter for the UK was near Cheltenham under the Cotswolds. They dug under the escarpment to get the necessary depth.


It may have escaped bombing depending if the Russians knew about it or not.
