This is a bit disappointing. They were given a £10,000 grant last year, you'd hope they'd have put some of that towards a new projector or something!
Seems like a hell of a task though, unless they plan on turning it into the Wirral Asbestos Museum. Free P3 mask with every visit
I think if they used entrance No2 (Holborn Square) as the main visitor entrance, they could keep the one behind the garage as a fire escape route, and that'd probably be enough to satisfy the H&S folks. I can imagine they'd only use a small part of the eastern half, since the ventilation gets much much worse towards the far side where the shaft was. You could restore some of the tunnel sections with bunks, chairs etc to make things more interesting:
Hell of a project! The asbestos is one thing, but the roofing is going to need a ton
of work too - both the corrugated stuff and the sandstone above.
Fort Perch Rock has a lovely little collection of 'home front' type stuff as well as the aircraft bits, maybe they could loan a selection of stuff to get things off the ground? I mean, they'll eventually have to make it the Merseyside Blitz Museum
or Wirral Wartime Experience
or something...the tunnels themselves are pretty featureless and the most use they ever saw was as storage for empty egg crates
EDIT: any of you folks involved with the volunteer group? they seem rather elusive!
