The wardens who were in the ARP were volunteers and usually had full time jobs during the day. Their job was to tell people in their houses to (PUT THAT LIGHT OUT) or point out the light that was coming through their Blackout Curtains. At the height of the War there were over a million and a quarter wardens. Other jobs that they did was to make sure that people got to their nearest shelter.
This Air Raid Shelter is in Stockport. Many people in Manchester went the Shelter from Manchester to get away from the Bombing in the War.

The Star Chamber was built about 1362 by Sir John Radclyffe as his private wing of the house. The Star Chamber had gilt coloured lead stars studded on to the ceiling, but have been replaced by plaster replicas. May be this is where Guy Fawkes and Robert Catesby plotted Gun Powder Plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament. Nobody is sure if this is true.
