    First did these a couple of years back but the place has now been completely sealed so thought id do a little report on it!!

    These rooms and tunnels are in the cliff beneath Wellington Cresent in Ramsgate and were used during WW2 as air raid shelters and ammunition stores for the 2 large guns that were based on the green near the band stand. They were 6 inch naval guns in steel turrets which were backed with concrete blast shelters. The site of the Merrie England amusement building, later known as Pleasurama which burned down in 1998, was used as offices and huts were built as staff accommodation.


    It is widely believed that these tunnels and rooms alone are “HMS Ferventâ€￾, however much of Ramsgate harbour was used as the HMS Fervent shore base, with motor torpedo boats and motor gun boats carrying out operations against enemy naval forces in the channel and north sea.


    On with the photos.............

    Once inside the tunnel the first thing you come to is an old rusty blast door......


    on the left theres a small alcove with an old chemical toilet.....


    It then leads into a series of rooms.........








    Gate leading into chalk cave.......


    Inside the chalk cave......... metal pole on the right is holding the ceiling up


    Gate leading out of the other side of the chalk cave......


    and into a chalk tunnel which started to go up a slope and turned into stairs.......



    On the right were afe small spur tunnels, these would of originally came out in the cliff face, now blocked of........


    The stairs lead up to an old door frame and then it was blocked of......


    All in all it was a great place to look round, shame its all been sealed.
