    History:
    These tunnels in Limekiln Street were most likely dug in the early to mid 19th Century to extract chalk for burning and turning into lime. The limekilns, which gave the street its name, were located nearby. It is probable that the lime and excavated chalk were used in the construction of Dover Harbour. Almost cavernous in places, the extent of these tunnels is impressive and it is not surprising they've had many uses over the years including WW2 shelters and storage. The tunnels are cut directly into the cliff, some are very short and end after a few feet, whereas others go back a few hundred feet and join up, the ceilings are up to 30ft high in places.

    The Explore:
    Getting into this one was certainly fun to say the least, with no ladder and having to scale a 15ft wall, pull someone up, jump back down to give someone else a boost up then climb back up myself, its safe to say i had worked up a little bit of a sweat by the time we got inside, well worth it though, this place was amazing.

    on to the pics
