  1. After seeing the posts on here of the other ROC Posts and been a bit of a ROC Virgin I thought I would look into this a little bit more and try and visit a post for myself. This is the little bit of history I know on this particular post. “The post was originally closed in 1968 but was reopened shortly after in 1976 (I was 3 then ) when the nearby post of Blean closed.� The post itself is in amazing condition (Apart from the massive cob web as you enter ) and I feel that this is due to the fact that the post is locked and on private land within close range of at least 3 houses. Not knowing too much about the exact location of the post I knocked on the first door I came to and hit the Jackpot. I was shown the exterior first then asked to comeback in half an hour so as the land owner could unlock the site and try to open the rusty hatch. Luckily for me he did and I was shown into the post by the landowners son who was very helpful. Thanks goes to the landowner and his family for offering to show me the post. Anyway time for the pics
  2.

If you have any queries email [email protected] FAO Jon Barker.

  4. 2013: I don't think this derp has had any more splores posted. 2010: No info really on this place, except it had 17 en suite bedrooms, all with colour tv, tea and coffee making facilities, and did conferencing. Still has half full barrells of cider and beer. Place is trashed to high heaven, shame really. It appeared to close after the 2002 season, the half full strongbow barrell expired in 2003. Tripod was knackered and camera walls FULL of condensation, the weather was absolutley terrible. The first floor was absolutley LITTERED with these things, HUNDREDS of them Ropey Floors! Absolutlety passed it, but hey its an explore after all. More at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/landie_man/sets/72157624858004315/

  6. This shelter is at the site of Fan Bay Battery a WWII site originally comprising 3 x 6" guns with associated magazines, shelters, Plotting room, Admin and accomodation areas. Today only traces of the gun pits can be found underneath the undergrowth and all surface buildings have been demolished. How ever there are still extensive underground remains to be found at the site, the largest of which is the deep shelter, This was constructed in 1941 by No.172 Tunneling Coy Royal Engineers, it is still accessible as are the magazines. Visited with Dan H (Non Member) so on with a few Pics, Firstly the one of the Magazines And now the deep shelter which in my Opinion is still more than worth a visit Thats all Folks
  7. Superb explore indeed...set on the southern part of the Isle of Wight,this 60`s style camp finally closed its doors in 2007.Complete with beach access,2 outside pools,2 tennis courts,a football pitch and camp site next door,Atherfield catered for all.Boasting a large hall for discos and a stage for entertainment,many a good holiday was no doubt enjoyed here.In 2005,Channel 4 made a Hi-de Hi type programme called Wakey Wakey Campers"..it featured a group of people from present day being made to experience a 60`s holiday regime..it was quite entertaining!We visited early 2010. And that folks,is Atherfield Bay..as we were driving out,the site owner was driving in..polite wave and we were off! Many thanks for looking.
  8. Cant say any more than the title sorry guys pics Not a great deal of history as i really dont know it guys
  9. This deep shelter is located at the site of the fan bay battery along the cliffs between Dover and St Margarets, Built in 1941 by No172 tunneling Coy Royal Engineers completed in August of the aformentioned year it was designed to accomodate 4 Officers and 185 other ranks. Really love these underground shelters, would love to find an "untouched" one
  10. Anyone know what this was access to ?, Its at St Margarets Bay car park on the right hand side (with your back facing the water) in the cliff face about 10ft up or so Looks to me like the top of a stairwell that used to be, Itd be nice to know where it went or what it connected to Cheers Tris

  12. It was a brilliant find by Trench and gave me a chance to try and improve my photographic skills. Oh and I remembered to take a tripod on this explore (This post has previously been posted on KUE and was in reply to Trench's post on the tunnels) Trench by silhouette I really enjoyed trying to take these silhouettes, but it was my first attempt. Since the visit Ive been able to brush up on my photographic skills, but any more tips are greatly welcome This tunnel was only about 40 foot long but was in good condition and in a brilliant location. Thanks Trench for dragging me through a rain soaked cornfield and beach to find it
