    Day trip over to Portsmouth for the climbing wall so thought we'd head underground for a few hours easy exploring before home..

    Portsdown Fuel Depot


    The fuel depots were built in the 1930's to provide a back up supply of fuel to the naval shipyards at Gosport should the main supply route be blocked by enemy action.

    The bunker consists of 9 large fuel tanks serviced by 2 tunnels running either side of the site.

    Paulsgrove Chalk Pit Radio Station


    During the second world war Fort Southwick was home to the UDHQ. Built underneath the Palmerston fort the UDHQ was network of tunnels acting as a command centre for the army, navy and airforce during operation overlord. To help avoid enemy detection the radio station and its associated masts were located around half a mile away in Paulsgrove chalk pit. The UDHQ is privately owned and used for airsoft games but the radio station is open.
