A shelter at Patcham Juniors
On a recent visit to my old school, the Downs, Ditchling Road to view the air raid shelter under the playground, it was suggested that most of the schools in Brighton had air raid shelters. After looking at the Patcham Juniors website, history of the school section, it would appear that there was a shelter. It was described in the 1980’s as being under where the community centre, and the new part of Margaret Hardy stood.
However, I’m finding it hard to picture whereabouts this is, as the school is now Patcham High and has even newer buildings added to it. Does anyone remember ever using the shelter or being told about it as I would be very interested in hearing about where they were? I wonder if like the Downs School they are still under there somewhere?
