  1. My second underground explore after visiting Z-Rocket earlier that morning. Very steep entrance with not much to hang onto but has some good pieces still in it. Some history: This deep shelter sunk into the chalk above Langdon Bay just to the east of Dover had two entrances about a hundred yards apart in a bank by a rough track well back from the cliff edge (the cutting for the railway line that used to run down to Dover Harbour many years ago). There are no signs of the entrances today. The roofs/walls were the usual galvanized wriggley sheet metal, but with quite a lot of brick work. In one section where the chalk was exposed an inscription, 'M. Tutt Dec 1944', had been cut quite deeply into the chalk. The steps leading out of the secondary (eastern) entrance were largely missing leaving a steeply sloping chalk floor leading back to the surface which was back filled in 1979.
  2. Done on my Jack had just got a new camera and wanted to learn how to use it, was down there for near on 3 hours in total !, plus another local site off my "to-do" list This deep shelter sunk into the chalk above Langdon Bay just to the east of Dover had two entrances about a hundred yards apart in a bank by a rough track well back from the cliff edge (the cutting for the railway line that used to run down to Dover Harbour many years ago). There are no signs of the entrances today. The roofs/walls were the usual galvanized wriggley sheet metal, but with quite a lot of brick work. In one section where the chalk was exposed an inscription, 'M. Tutt Dec 1944', had been cut quite deeply into the chalk. The steps leading out of the secondary (eastern) entrance were largely missing leaving a steeply sloping chalk floor leading back to the surface which was back filled in 1979, Right enough history on with some pics. Some "Original Graffiti" Ventilation plant This is quite a good example compared to many of the others Ive visited and while its been got at a bit its no where near as bad as the majority
  3. Sitting below the coast guard station in Langdon, Dover, is a tunnel used duing WW2. This has been maintained well and is still accessed by the coast guard station and they have even installed a small gym. Not huge but interesting and nice to see.

  5. Located at Langdon Hole, in East Langdon, lays an air raid shelter deep underground. I can’t find too much information on this place but it is believed it was formerly known as Dumpy ‘B’ and used as a communications shelter during WW2. Also located in Dover was Longhill shelter which was formerly known as dumpy ‘A’. These two shelters were of an almost identical layout. Langdon hole Deep shelter originally had two entrances. One was steel lined and the other was un-lined chalk. After the WW2 there was no further need for the shelter and it was capped off with the original entrances destroyed. Over the years the top soil has caused a small opening to appear at one of the original entrances meaning that the rather hidden entrance is now accessible and this almost forgotten shelter has regular visits from historians and explorers. I had visited this shelter many times over the last couple of years but in my most recent visit I finally photographed the place. Visited with Urban Junkie, Shadow, Maniac, Frosty, Skydiver, Cave Zombie and Scrimshady. Originally there would have been a staircase entering the tunnel but over the years it has collapsed leaving a steep slope at the entrance The second entrance is now sealed. This is the un-lined/secondary entrance At the bottom of the main entrance is a small room and spur leading to the main complex The shelter consists of two parallel tunnels with a spur at each corner. Thanks for looking
  6. ..........oi oi, this is my 1st post EVER sooooooooooo try not ta laugh too much if it goes wrong (that means you fluff ha ha ha X X X ) most of these picz were taken with UnfairytailUrbex Gmaps.zipDH000007.jpg[/attachment:1j7xxns4]CNV00132.JPG[/attachment:1j7xxns4]CNV00120.JPG[/attachment:1j7xxns4]CNV00163.JPG[/attachment:1j7xxns4]CNV00181.JPG[/attachment:1j7xxns4]..........enjoy
  7. Of all my years exploring Dover, this is one place that kept evading me, mainly because I didn't know where the entrance was! Oh I've spent many hours wondering around the area trying to find it! Anyhow, Frosty and co kindly showed me where it was the other night (cheers dude!) , so I was able to finally take some photos of it! Langdon hole was an underground communication centre during WWII. Sometimes referred to as Dumpy B, purely because it acted in the same role, although it bears little resemblance to the Dumpy level of Dover Castle. Entrance to this place is interesting, as all the steps are missing, so you have a very steep slope to contend with on entry - not one to do on a wet day! Anyhow, here are a few photos. This is the entrance way looking back up from the bottom. With lots of old metal containers at the bottom Which leads through this walkway into the rest of the complex Which looks like this There's an un-lined tunnel which leads to another entrance, now blocked Maniac.
