Stockport air raid shelters

In Prep 4 as a school trip we went to the Stockport air raid shelters, which were used in the Second World War. At the start of the trip we went to Stockport museum which had loads of interesting information. Inside the museum we had the chance to make and taste food that evacuees would have eaten during the Second World War. We had a grated carrot sandwich and also a sugar sandwich. They were ok but I think I’ll stick with ham or cheese!
We then went to the main part of the trip to the air raid shelters. We went down 30 feet into the ground and then we saw what it was like for everyone in the war. We saw the place where the doctors would have worked and where people might have slept.
This was an experience I will never forget.
