    Far below the streets of Manchester city center lie dormant and vacant of life the hidden arches. The Manchester arches originally designed in the early 1800's at the height of Manchester's industrial revolution were transformed into Air raid shelters for citizens and business/community leaders at the heart of the city during the second world war.

    Here are some amazing pictures of the interior in 2018:

    The Arches stretch some 6km, although most of the older entrances have since been blocked up:

    Nice...

    Are you from Manchester? Are these shelters accessible to general public? If so can you guide me how to get in there and if it is safe or not!
