Possible Air Raid Shelter - Hamstead Hill, Handsworth Wood
« on: July 12, 2020, 11:10:20 PM »
Hi everyone. I am new to the forum and wanted to join to learn the history of my home town.


The first question I have is regarding two brick openings (now covered in ivy) on Hamstead Hill.


I was wondering whether they could be entrances/exits to what might have been an air raid shelter.


If any one has any information or can help I would appreciate it.


Cheers


Deacon

Unable to help re Hamstead Hill but there was a large air raid shelter on the Walsall road opposite the Tennis courts pub.  It remained I believe until the Walsall road was duelled.
