This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    My name is Aikaterini Athanassouli and I am a 3rd year student in the Welsh School of Architecture, in University of Cardiff.

    The area of Clapham, and specifically the South Shelter have been of high interest to me and I chose this site as my hypothetical Design Project for this year.

    I have looked at your website and I am fascinated about the underground war shelter being open to the public. I will buy the ticket for the tour-visit when it is available, I think end of January.

    I am writing you this email to ask you if its possible, to provide me with some more information about the shelter, prior to my visit.

    Anything from diagrams, measurements, drawings, information or articles would be appreciated. I have made a thorough research, but I seem to lack information for my university project as I don’t understand the underground nature of the site.

    Your knowledge would be very helpful.
    Thank you for your time,
