    Well this has been on my list since i saw it had been done by some other explorers. You know who you are lol. Anyway after lots of research a night walking around in the dark for a few hours and lots of decieving and very off putting comments from various people we head off into the darkness for a second time. Knowing pretty much where we was heading it was a lot quicker getting there than last time and once we were down in the east ditch 5 mins later we were in Hudsons bastion.

    Little bit of history. Built in response to the threat of invasion by Napoleon, Hudson’s bastion was constructed on the eastern side of Dover Castle to improve its defences. It is linked to the castle via Hudson’s Passage. The bastion was designed to provide flanking fire from its numerous firing slits. The caponier projecting from the bastion into the ditch would have provided even more fire power for the defenders.

    Well anyway on with some pics
