Air-Raid Shelters south east of Kenley aerodrome there is a triangular grass area between, Salmons Lane, Salmons Lane West and Whyteleafe Hill. During WWII there were temporary huts used by the RAF and also a public air-raid shelter. It may be that the shallow mounds visible in this area are the site of the air-raid shelters.
