Air Raid Shelter, St Leonard's Court, St Leonard's Road, East Sheen SW14 - Richmond upon Thames

Air raid shelter, probably built in 1938 to serve St Leonard's Court which was built in 1934-38 by local builder Mr FG Fox. It was designed to hold 48 people; at the time there were 83 flats. The Environment Trust commissioned a structural survey leading to minor works, and funding is being sought for further repairs and use as an educational resource. Listed Building Consent has been granted for a handrail to improve access down into the structure.
