    Visited with silverainbow and Chris, three (or four) sites over the course of the day. Was just using a point and shoot so apologies for the quality of the photos. All history is from Underground Kent.

    First was the Z Rocket/St Margaret's deep shelter:

    Fallen ducting

    Unlined section

    Then we tried to have a look at the St Margaret's Esplanade tunnels, but the tide was going the wrong way so we headed up to Langdon Hole:

    This shelter had a much more elaborate ventilation system than the other deep shelters I've been in in Dover, with underfloor ducting and oddly placed air passages.

    One of the main rooms, with some of the ventilation ducts apparently taken from ships

    Cart for moving equipment up and down the railed incline to the shelter

    Then we went over to the South Casemates at the Western Heights:


    To get from the South to the North casemates we had to elbow-crawl, stoop and slither for about ten minutes along here, including a six foot long pipe only just wide enough to squeeze through, using your toes to push yourself along:

    The North Casemates had obviously had far fewer visitors over the years - perhaps due to the tunnel slither, or perhaps just because of the state of the toilets:

    Walking back we came across this little fellow, sniffing around only a few metres away:

    All in all a good day!
