Revisit to this place, but this time my best mate Baron Jnr came with me.

Every year my folks, my kids and myself get a week or so on this beautiful island, I usually get a day or so on my own with a car to explore the island.

This year I ended up not to well with a bloody ear infection !!! so on this explore I was stone cold deaf and really not up for it, but with the new 8-16mm I really wanted another go at the place.

So the night before Baron Jnr asked if he could go along with me (hes only 9 :) ) was a proper proud moment :D

Hes done a few local places in Scotland but this was his first EU UE :cool2: and I think he just wanted to get 1 more explore under his belt v`s his sister lol plus he wanted to wear gloves lol

As I said its a revisit and i`m still confused over what the place was, I first thought distillery but now someone mentioned it looks more like a place for grain so god knows

All pics apart from one or 2 where taken by Baron Jnr (he`d tell me what/where to shoot and I`d set it up and let him take it)

      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

      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......

      no prefix for Majorca so went with Spain
      my annual family holiday wouldnt be the same without some kind of explore.
      Got in about 7am but by 8am the sun was so bright its blowing out a lot of the window shots (must get up earlier !!!)
      Lovely place and very different to anything I`ve done of late

















      Cheers
