Interesting. although many domestic gardens had what were known as Anderson Shelters, named after Sir John Anderson – the man in charge of Air Raid Precautions. The dimensions you describe sound about right. Whereabouts are you situated?

Further information on Anderson Shelters can be found at https://andersonshelters.org.uk/ and there’s even a Facebook group Anderson Shelters in your garden.
