      After an early sat morning start and the great english weather (PISSING DOWN AGAIN ). Me and wevsky head off to pick up obscurity and maniac, After a short drive up to northfleet we meet up with troglodyte peach and kheridr .
      A quick beer and breakfast stop then off to AEI henley cable works and shelters. What was to follow was an amazing set of tunnels,no graffiti completely untouched .Right after thanking wevsky for sorting the trip out and a to mr t for your help
      A brief bit of history
      W T Henley / AEI Cable Works Air Raid Shelter,
      The company W T Henley has always been highly regarded for the manufacture of cable and electrical components and was clearly the company of choice when a system had to be devised as a countermeasure to the growing threat of German magnetic mines during the Second World War. As a result, a new site was constructed in 1939 in Gravesend for W T Henley and a complex of tunnels built underneath to provide air raid shelter for the company’s employees.
      Taken from undergroundkent... on with the pics












      a few of the shelters

      I first did this with obscurity about a year ago and decided i was never going to go back!! but....... i forgot my camera so i had to !!
      Visited again a little while back with frosty. After rigging up the abseiling equipment and checking our gear, making sure i had my camera, we desended into the entrance!!
      There isnt alot of info on this place but it almost certainly would of been used as a shelter during the war, but going by the seperate rooms with chalk cut seats and the fact its on 3 levels i dont think this would of been its intended purpose. It isnt very big and only had one room on the middle and lower floors but was still quite an exciting explore.
      Once inside we trudged though a couple of inches of bird crap and pigeon corpes and did the middle level.
      From the entrance the tunnel turned to the right. directly in front was small poo covered staircase curving round to the left down the to bottom room. Stangely the ceiling was only high enough to crawl down the stairs. Turning left the tunnel continued a short way with a couple of recess's cut into the walls. Towards the end on the right was a small drop going into the lower room.
      Looking back down tunnel

      At the end an entrance to the left was a short passage leading into the first room, on the right was a brick stair case leading up
      short passage

      there were seats carved into the chalk and a small candle recess with soot still on the wall.
      looking into room from passage

      chalk seats


      Next we headed up the stairs. At the top was small tunnel going of the left which was blocked and some more stairs leading to the original entrance at the surface.
      Looking up the stairs

      caped of entrance at ground level

      back down the stairs we headed......

      we wanted to take a look in the bottom room but didnt wana crawl down the poo stairs so we jumped down the drop
      bottom room, passage at end leads to poo stairs

      looking other way, there was a recess on the right, probably for a toilet

      all in all was a good little adventure. it isnt very big but took us a while to fight our way through the pigeons and try not to touch the crumbling walls. Will DEFINATELY not be going back.
      Did a little video which can be seen here......

    • By TheBaronof Scotland
      Family holiday, got a day to myself with the camera
      This place was huge and I know I only covered 40% ish, the site covers a few miles and in 35 degree heat I felt I had done enough in 3 hours, but maybe a return next year to cover the other bits.
      I honestly stripped this down from 70+ plus shots


      There was almost a higher ranking living area once passed the main gate


      the only real graffiti I saw


      old statue knocked down

      Outdoor bath for higher ranking personal

      Another checkpoint ?


      A very hot and long road to the rest of the base

      random buildings


      entrance to an underground area


      more underground entrances

      pitch black

      led to this

      directly beneath this


      Then I found the long tunnel !!!

      which became this, gotta say, I`m not a fan of underground and this was maybe 200m long with a few off shoots to the cliff sides






      up top I found this



      then the long walk back to the car
      Cheers
