Earthworks, Coventry 26735_031

Second World War air raid shelter in Coventry. In this photograph traces of a Second World War air raid shelter can still be seen in Radford Road recreation ground, Coventry. Although partly demolished after the war, the filled-in remains of the interconnected trenches, that formed part of the shelter, are indicated by dark rectangles of lusher grass growth. These trenches also appear to survive as slight depressions in the ground. The park is not far from the city centre and close to the site where the Daimler motor works once stood. The remains of this communal shelter illustrate one of the ways the wartime population was protected from air raids, but is also a poignant reminder of the aerial bombardment that Coventry endured during the conflict.
