Air-raid Shelter Kleine Heide

From 1936 to 1940, 4 public air raid shelters were planned in Venlo. One in the Rummerkampstraat, one on the Leutherweg, one on the Kaldenkerkerweg and one on the Kleine Heide. Four pieces in total.
All bomb shelters are not open to the public, but the concrete still sticks out of the ground here and there. Likewise here. There is a road next to the caravan camp and the VVV stadium. You will find this shelter right next to it. It would have accommodated 700 people, but I don't know if the cellar is still intact. Without an access and an investigation, that is difficult to determine. Most people from Venlo don't even know that something was located here, hence this addition.
