After an early sat morning start and the great english weather (PISSING DOWN AGAIN :x ). Me and wevsky head off to pick up obscurity and maniac, After a short drive up to northfleet we meet up with troglodyte peach and kheridr .

A quick beer and breakfast stop :beer: then off to AEI henley cable works and shelters. What was to follow was an amazing set of tunnels,no graffiti completely untouched .Right after thanking wevsky (y) for sorting the trip out and a (y) to mr t for your help

A brief bit of history

W T Henley / AEI Cable Works Air Raid Shelter,

The company W T Henley has always been highly regarded for the manufacture of cable and electrical components and was clearly the company of choice when a system had to be devised as a countermeasure to the growing threat of German magnetic mines during the Second World War. As a result, a new site was constructed in 1939 in Gravesend for W T Henley and a complex of tunnels built underneath to provide air raid shelter for the company’s employees.
