A few pics from multiple visits with 12 gauge and solar p

This place is truly massive its so much bigger than i expected the walk out to it via the walkway just builds up the expectations truly one of the best places i have explored.

bit of history Grain tower battery was constructed in 1855 the style resembles a martelo tower extra parts were added on in the later world wars in 1910 more guns and the tower was attached. in the 1940s more modifications were completed when the extra block was attached.

A few artsy fartsy pictures

Shame to see even more graffiti in the place. Ah well, that's medway for you.

Great set of pics, you got some interesting angles there. :D Need to re-visit this place at some point, as the photos I do have are pretty poor, and I never got into the accomodation block because the weather turned while we were out there and we decided to head back to shore.

Also it's still for sale for £700,000 :eek:
