P4 Anderson Shelters 🏗

9th Feb 2024
P4 project! Young designers & engineers 🏗 As war in Europe loomed in 1938, the Anderson shelter was designed to offer householders basic protection during air raids.
 
By the outbreak of World War II in September 1939, Anderson shelters had been installed in the gardens of around 1.5 million houses in the areas most expected to be targeted by the Luftwaffe. A further 2.1 million were installed over the course of the war.
 
Of those 3.6 million shelters, just a handful remain in place today.
