Air Raid Shelters

Air Raid Shelter Structural Damage

Following the results of structural surveys, Harpenden Town Council made the decision to infill the historic air raid shelters located around the Town Centre in September 2018. The surveys showed that the structures have deteriorated significantly from the previous structural survey, and had become a risk to public safety.

In order to preserve the history of the shelters, we have developed interpretation boards which tell the story of the shelters from WWII, and have had interactive 3D scans of the shelters produced allowing all to see the layout and feature of the underground bunkers.

The scans were completed by Weston Media and can be viewed below. Click each shelter on the map for a link to that shelters scan.
