I think the place names you are looking for are, St Martins flank and the road of remembrance bunker. :D

st martins yep that was first one and road of rememberence was last one..the tunnel with the long staicase is the mystery,in same general area of st martin but on the right over the fence from car park track goes down,and feeling wobbly as i did i didnt enjoy that bit,got all excited when we got in but just one tunnel with a room at bottom seen in pics

Road of rememberance bunker is a pretty nice place, although pretty stripped.

Cave spiders down there where just a little on the scarey side

Dazzer had one leap out of his camera bag and scuttle under his kithen units a while back. I think Frosty had a whole nest of the buggers spring up in his room once, so who knows it just might happen . . . . . . .

I've Got no idea - it looks just like the passages inside part of the detached bastion in Dover - and while St martins isn't all that far from there, I don't think that's where you were. It's clearly part of the napoleonic defences thou.

well all i know was from car park over fence downa very nasty path to this there where other small looking entrances that where filled..but main tunnel was about 80 yeards long was just glad to get too carpark level me legs gave out and it was clamber on all fours up a very steep slope..stick me down a manhole deep as u like cliff edges nah..may be worth a look again ,some local bloke in car park mentioned it as he saw rucksacks etc we had

That's the problem with Dover - it's full of passeges and tunnels everywhere. I like to think I've seen most of them, but there's always stuff turning up! I expect someone on here will know what it is, but it's not one I've visited before.

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!

      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.
