The entrance to the Anderson Air-Raid shelter can be seen just over the red fence. Interestingly, the next door garden, to the west, also has their wartime shelter.

Interesting re the Anderson shelter, we had one in our yard also but it was removed completely.
Callum Ross lived on the right side of the building, he was a ham radio buff and had a shed where he kept his equipment, it might be the small one shown here.
I believe Amy Smith still lives on the other side, Lucille's mother.

Re the Anderson shelters, many of these were dug up and used as sheds. In fact I have seen quite a few down here in gardens still used as sheds. They really used proper materials back in these days.

There are still a few left in Gordon Terrace.

Any Anderson shelter that may be in Gordon Terrace was taken there as a shed and not for its original purpose as Gordon Terrace came after the war finished.
