    Visited with Rustproofhawk,thanks to Space Inavder for making it a little easier for us.Access was pretty funny but probably not to be tried in the wet.

    Situated on the cliffs between Folkestone and Dover. Built during WW2, the Lydden Spout Deep Shelter was part of the site for a battery of six inch long range guns on the cliff tops above the spring known as Lydden Spout. There were also quite a few surface buildings and three underground magazines. Most of the surface building have gone leaving just two which are used as cattle sheds. One interesting feature of this site was the water supply, which I believe came from the spring at the bottom of the cliffs several hundred feet below. A chamber had been hollowed out of the cliff at the base of the spring and ram pumps installed to pump water up to the cliff top. Ram pumps work by using the energy of the flowing water to raise some of the water higher, and need no other power source or engine.
