The Road of Remembrance bunker lies midway on the Road of Remembrance, and it was used as a WW2 naval communication centre.

It was originally built with 2 entrances, a number of toilets, and a ventilation room directly above the complex.

There are still the remains of WW2 posters up around the walls. For its position on the roadside the bunker is in relatively good condition and is well worth a visit.

A short walk down the road sees yourself strolling onto the old Folkestone harbour train station, with hardly any energy left I didn't venture down to the lighthouse but at least it gives me a reason to go back.

Hope you like the photo's, comments are always welcomed.

A medium size photo just doesnt do this one justice:

Still surprises me how clean this place is considering it's location. You should have climbed the harbour tower as well, that's probably the best bit of Folkestone Harbour viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1133

There's big re-development plans afoot for the bunker and that whole area of Folkestone - about time really as it's really badly run down.

Nice pics Ryda.

I was using a 8mm fish eye lens moley, this distorts the photo to give a curved effect, but fits in pretty much everything my eyes fit in!

The bunker is in terrefic condition, I'd like to see it reconditioned, stickman was left at home this time, feeling a bit under the weather, he's lost a lot of weight, he's just skin and bones now! Well.... Lol
