I know nothing about an air raid tunnel. Anderson shelters were delivered to those with a back garden (our's was in Moor Road) and the council built shelters in the streets where the backs were brick blocked  (Mount Pleasant Street is one example). The Anderson shelters could be bought for a small sum after the war, and the street shelters were nearly all demolished. The one opposite the fish shop on Pontefract raod survived and was converted to a hair dressing salon and then private housing. I think the subject heading says it all. ie it is a myth.
The sand tunnels in Pontefract were used as air raid shelters. I have never seen or heard of anything similar in Purston or south Featherstone.
