This was my first underground explore and loved every minute of it. A big thank you to AlanMowbs82 for some help with the entrance :D

Some stolen history:

The Site is located under the 5.5 gun battery constructed during world war 2, this battery no longer remains having been demolished in the 1970s. The Deep shelter however still remains. This gunsite mounted 4 x 5.5" guns and was manned by 411 Battery. Tunnelled accommodation was provided at the rear of the Battery, and an extra chamber between the two parallel tunnels was later added by 171 Tunnelling Coy. as additional space for the medical services.there are hazards such as unsupported sections of the tunnels as well as a chute that opens directly into the face of the cliff.
