Drakelow Tunnels were constructed as part of the Ministry of Aircrafts Shadow Factory Scheme for use by Rover in WWII and were primarily used for Workshops and Storage. After the War the Government took the building and prepared it as a Nuclear Bunker for use during the Cold War, with new rooms and equipment designed to house local and national Government officials, plus armed forces and medical teams. Thankfully the Cold War ended and Drakelow Tunnels were sold off in the early 1990's.
During the construction of Drakelow Tunnels there were 6 deaths as a result of a roof collapse, and another incident following an impact with a truck which 2 men died while riding the conveyors. Their tragic deaths are believed to be the reason for most of the activity that occurs in Tunnels 1 - 4, it's rumoured that the names of these dead men were carved into the sandstones in the spot at which they died.
