2006: Recording of an WWII Air raid shelter in the rear garden of 118 Northgate Street, Bury St Edmunds, prior to its demolition. The shelter was an example of a double domestic surface shelter, the blue print for which was issued by the Government in May 1939. It was constructed against an existing boundary wall, 2.6m from the rear of the house. The shelter was wholly above ground, constructed of brick, built off a concrete slab floor and has a cast concrete roof. The ground level in the garden had been raised and banked up against the south side of the shelter, burrying the floor slab and the bottom four courses of brick and part blocking the emergency exits. At the north end the slab is above ground forming a step up into the shelter. Rectangular plan, divided into two equally sized and symmetrical cells. Each cell has an entrance at the north end and an opposing low emergency exit at the south. A doorway close to the south wall connects the two halves of the shelter (S1).
