Right the journey for one of us started here
This thread caused quite a stir so in true thanet crew style we tagged onto this effort by Obscurity and teamed up for the plotting room..never has it been reported on and after all the fuss and agro from kent history forum and local landowners tbh i dont think any one thought it would be photographed..there was power left on in this plotting room and a pump/dehumidifier left runnng with power cables and lights left abandoned..So be rude not to poke our heads down this kept quiet and allegedly sealed/capped off bit of history..
Not many pics frm here as to be honest its a plotting room ,just thought we would share
Nothing particularly ground breaking but something kurg may have started before hostilities that we felt we had to see through
Lydden Spout Battery was constructed in 1941 there are still many features of the site to be seen, I went with the intent of exploring the underground shelter but was unable to find it so second visit planned, I did however find the "Plotting Room" so took a look round inside there instead.
It looks like it would have been in great condition inside as its possibly the cleanest Ive been in however it has been trashed and most of this looks as though it may have been done in recent years
On with some pics
Well worth a look, small inside but interesting none the less
History very nicely covered by Nelly Ill add my pics here visited with Nelly, Skeleton Key, Msaunder1972, Non Member Ben, Troglodyte, Priority Seven, Wevsky, SpaceInvader and Obscurity.
Ok on with my pics
Nice relaxed explore, my thanks again to Nelly and the guys for taking us down there
