Mesnes Park Air raid Shelters – Wigan – July 2013

Author tch0rt - Last updated: 05.11.2013

I had seen a couple of pics from the tunnels under the Mesnes park in Wigan and a newspaper article that they were due to be capped off, I was passing by so decided for a dinner time explore to see if I could locate them.

With nothing more than the name of the park and a smart phone I pulled up to see what I could find

10 minutes and I was climbing down the ladder and into the darkness, isn’t technology brilliant

Sadly I snapped my tripod a few days ago so these are handheld

Anyone know if these tunnels are still open, had a good look around the park on sunday and wasnt able to find anything, but its not the smallest park and I may have been looking in the wrong area!

Anyone want to give a clue? I focused my search on the area between the pavilion and the old mill…

I was down them a few weeks ago, they’re still open. Well, the entrance near the old College, anyway. It’s pretty interesting to look around and explore, only with proper lighting though or you’re pretty much in the pitch black.
