  1. My second underground explore after visiting Z-Rocket earlier that morning. Very steep entrance with not much to hang onto but has some good pieces still in it. Some history: This deep shelter sunk into the chalk above Langdon Bay just to the east of Dover had two entrances about a hundred yards apart in a bank by a rough track well back from the cliff edge (the cutting for the railway line that used to run down to Dover Harbour many years ago). There are no signs of the entrances today. The roofs/walls were the usual galvanized wriggley sheet metal, but with quite a lot of brick work. In one section where the chalk was exposed an inscription, 'M. Tutt Dec 1944', had been cut quite deeply into the chalk. The steps leading out of the secondary (eastern) entrance were largely missing leaving a steeply sloping chalk floor leading back to the surface which was back filled in 1979.
  2. This was my first underground explore and loved every minute of it. A big thank you to AlanMowbs82 for some help with the entrance 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. Thanks for looking.
  3. Got down to the entrance the other day and had a look inside, but the state of the roof put me off from going in.
  4. Hi Often driven past this location and always wondered if anyone has even been inside or if its accessible. As you are driving down the A20 in Dover you go past the old flats which are now all boarded up. Anyone got any info? https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Dover/@51.1241131,1.3156796,280m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x47dea4d1553332ff:0x32785c875ad74851
  5. Nikon D5100 currently with 18-200mm Wide angle or 50mm next??
  6. Hi all, well this is my fist post so im starting with something easy. Arrived Sunday afternoon with camera in hand. Thought i would be climbing over and under fences but this place is wide open so just strolled in through the front gate Place has been graffitied to death but was interesting to look around. I forgot my tripod so will be venturing back at some stage for some more pics. Some history about the place: Now for some pictures: Not much but found the old school building interesting to look around. What are peoples thoughts on a 50mm 1.8f lens for this kind of photography? Currently using my 18-200mm on my Nikon D5100.
