    In another round of re-visits of local places to get some better pictures, we decided to pop our heads into the Lydden Spout plotting room and deep shelter as they are only a short distance from each other. Like all the others dotted along the clifftops at Dover, this was built as part of the gun battery that used to be on top of the cliffs at this point. All the surface features have long since disappeared, but the underground features still remain.

    The entrance to the Lydden shelter is a bit tricky being halfway down the cliff with a fairly steep path leading up to it. We must have been slightly mad to be doing this on a fairly cold, very windy and wet night, but we all made it in and out OK.

    Visited with Frosty, RaptorJesus and a non forum member.

    My photos of the plotting room mainly consist of doors - as to be fair, that's all there really is in the place apart from the old ventilation equipment.

    And now the deep shelter. This one is very damp towards the back, but does have an excellent staircase in.
