Another drive past find on a trip to Italy last year, never seen pics of it, so we called it Powerplant Percy.  It was a sub-station of some sort, but stripped out and not much to see, but it was rather nice inside, so here you have it.

Well there you have it, a stripped out shell, but they need a bit of love too, or maybe not, you got this far, so you must have enjoyed it ;)

      Having just recovered from one fever and been laid up for a while
      The splore fever was now running high & needed to get out bad.
      I set off with Lara and after negotiating a few obstacles we started working our way through the woods of a very large site.
      The whole area is dotted with over grown structures some dating back to Napoleonic times.
      It was Original used for the development & manufacture of explosives and then the development of missiles,Rockets and other propelled objects.
      We ended up giggling like kids hiding behind trees to avoid the men driving around in Land Rovers to get to where we wanted to be.
      The old laboratories & store area.
      Splore on


























      Cheers for sneaking a peak

      This has been the one shelter i dover that's eluded me due to the entrance or rather the route down to it!three years ago i had a go and last year but my body would not allow me to go down the ever disappearing cliff path to it..
      Fast forward 3 years and with a lot of encouragement from the guys i finally got down to it ..cheers lads
      Visited with SpaceInvader Obscurity and UrbanJunky was a great meet up and pukka day out
      Brief blagged history
      Lydden Spout Battery was constructed in 1941 on the cliffs between Dover and Folkestone. This consisted of three 6� naval gun positions, magazines, gun rooms, a plotting room and a large deep shelter. The guns were removed in the 1970’s but the foundations are still visible to date. All underground parts are in a good condition. Above ground most buildings were demolished but an officers mess remains and is now used as a cow shed
