    It was the hottest day of the year so far, and after a 3am explore with my brother finished off a 10 hour drinking session, I woke up with a stinking hangover. Not a good combination to head down to Dover with. I waited in a pub for the guys to finish their first site and worked the jonny-p charm on the bar maid... until she told me her age :banghead

    After a bit of a fail elsewhere, we resolved to have a go at Detached Bastion or North Entrance. DB was sealed up, so North Entrance it was.

    Some history from underground kent:
    Visited with Space Invader, Stealth, SX riffraff and Silver Rainbow.


    Didn't get a proper exterior photo, the above was from a previous mooch.


    Entrance was a bit tricky, I needed the workout though :rolleyes:


    Once in, the temperature was much lower than the furnace-esque temperatures outside.


    There are two off shoots from the main tunnel that used to be a main road, one is a caponier and the other with access to three water tanks and a collapsed tunnel. Above is the staircase down to the caponier.


    Lovely rooms and brickwork in the caponier.


    Above is one of the water tanks, the only one of which that has not been filled.


    This tunnel originally led to an entrance emerging near the Drop Redoubt, but has collapsed part way down.


    Getting out was good fun for all except Tristian and my camera bag :rolleyes:

    Good afternoon though, good to be meeting a few more of the members and taking another site off of my list :D
