DRAKELOW Tunnels will be opening its doors to visitors for a special Easter open day.

Volunteers helping to renovate the tunnels will be giving visitors a guided tour through the former Second World War aero engine factory on Saturday, April 19.

Tours, which will take about an hour and a half, will guide visitors through the old Rover tunnels and back round the nuclear side that was converted for use as a regional Government headquarters during the Cold War.

Tickets cost £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s and any profits made will go to the Retired West Midlands Police Dog Benevolent Fund.

Future open days will also raise funds for local charities.

Visitors are asked to bring torches as parts of the bunker are un-lit.
