World War I Air Raid Shelters

World War I Air Raid Shelters

The caves at Skinningrove beside Kilton Beck were used as air raid shelters for the staff and patients of Skinningrove Hospital during the Zepplin raids of World War I. Brian Sawdon confirms this with: “These caves were also used in World War II; my mother took shelter there”.
