Air Raid Precaution Centre, Rossendale Street (east side) E5 - Hackney

Air raid shelter built in 1938. The building has previously suffered from flooding. Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent were granted in 2004 for the retention of the air raid shelter as a museum and construction of flats above. These works are largely complete and the flats occupied. However, the ownership of the Air Raid Precaution Centre is uncertain, and the space is currently used for storage.
