    Shorts tunnels in Rochester were home to the Shorts Brothers Seaplane factory. The factory sat along the banks of the Medway, with two parallel one hundred metre tunnels leading into the chalk cliff face. This led to part of the underground factory, air raid shelters and file storage areas.

    This was a real eye-opener, always known about the place but have never found the time to visit. The brickwork tunnels were stunning with great attention to detail, some mint old signage, and lots of machinery and relics. Shame we got so tired in the end, this place definitely needs a full day. Explored with Speed and Urban Junkie, thanks to Speed for pointing this one out :thumb
