  1. cant believe this is still open!!! you can come from the road above via a staircase rather than ruin your boots new torch doing the business
  2. where did that switchboard come from!!! like sk says great captures on the detail shots
  3. This one can go public now as it's been locked
  4. cherrs stussy, unfortunatly this is literally all there is to photograph in the place, i missed a couple of the manhole rungs but other than that it's just one long, straight tunnel!
  5. sorry SK wont happen again! there are plenty in the area, in a day you should be able to knock off most of them, btw my name is Mark, not Alan ;-)
  6. Nothing online about it mate so pretty much guess work, I'm no sewer\drain expert!
  7. visited with alanmowbs82 and captain_kid this culvert runs for about a mile and half, it has three different build techniques, prefab concrete rings, round victorian and egg shaped, I'm assuming that the downstream half of the culvert was changed from victorian brick to the concrete to accept an overflow pit from the main sewer (pic 4&5), although the floor into the overflow chamber wasn't particularly slippery so i'm assuming it doesn't see that much use 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. cheers for looking
  8. visited with alanmowbs82, this set of tunnels wwas a deep refuge for the royal marines, built over two levels the lower being a sleeping and refuge area and the upper being the offices, plant and casualty clearing station for the hospital which sat at that entrance. It's a nice set of tunnels with little to no graffiti from after the second world war. Unfortunately it's damp in places which has led to a lot of the hardboard walls of the offices deteriorating but all in all a very nice set. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. thanks for looking
  9. visited with alanmowbs82 this was the last of the dover shelters we needed to do, popped down for a quick look and sadly now all locked up again, apart from the fire damage it's still in pretty good nick and a few decent photo opportunities, history here: http://thetimechamber.co.uk/beta/sites/deep-shelters-air-raid-shelters/st-martins-battery-deep-shelter-dover 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. cheers for looking
  10. very nice little limestone mine in kent, unfortunately it has been backfilled in most places to leave about three foot headroom, which means a lot of crawling\ducking as you make your way round, not really that photogenic and it suffers from a bit of mist in places, further history here: www.kurg.org.uk/sites/limestone.htm 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. thanks for looking
  11. Visited this one night back in may with a non-member, it's one of the better shelters in\around dover imo, I forgot that I had been there so that's why the report is a bit late! little bit of history can be found here: http://www.undergroundkent.co.uk/index.php/2013-08-29-00-41-19/deep-shelters/south-foreland-battery-deep-shelter 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. thanks for looking
