Deep Level Tube Shelters

The Bombings of 1940 forced a reappraisal of deep-shelter policy and at the end of October the Government decided to construct a system of deep shelters linked to existing tube stations. Each shelter comprises of two parallel tubes 16 foot 6 inches internal diameter and 1,600 feet long and placed below existing station tunnels. The circular tunnel entrances are still visible in locations across Clapham, including Clapham Common, Clapham North and Clapham High Street.
