This is the first of two deep shelters that were built at south foreland.

This particular shelter was excavated in 1941 by 172 Tunnelling Coy and No.1 Section, 171 Tunnelling Coy. R.E. to provide accommodation and shelter to the gun crews at the Battery site.

Really liked it down this one,been to quite a few deep shelters and this one doesn't have much graffiti which is nice, the general condition isnt too bad but most of the wall linings etc have fallen off making a bit of a mess but one of the tunnels is spotless so i guess someone's been having a sweep up down there at some point. didnt spend too much time down there as was in a rush and went on to do another 3 explores that night but i think the pics came out ok.

thanks for looking

alan.

Thanks everyone for the comments, very kind.

And thanks to Steve for pointing me in the right direction :) .

Just one deep shelter I need to see around that coastal area now but that's the next mission ;-).
