    Scotts caves also known to some as snaregate street west tunnels is dug into the cliffs at western heights..the main tunnels where used during ww2 as a shelter..the tunnels where named after scott & sons dyeing and cleaning works which i think closed down in the sixties .there doesnt appear to be much info on the net about the place so i have put a few odds and sods of info together how much is correct im not sure.Well i know is called scotts caves ...There is a pit with pipes going down and a shaft leading up with pipes that was a well,that i think had some connection with the grand shaft barracks but dont quote me.Please excuse lack of pics on this and quality took a fair few but others led’s and bodys in shot didn’t keep many not anyones fault tho..heres a few pics




    This was looking down the well..and as for the up the shaft pics wasnt dangling over the edge to light paint so flash..



    Im thinking camera shake and i should have got my remote out!





    On to D.O.E
    There isnt a huge amount of information on these tunnels but ive cobbled together some facts from reading up a little on various sites!so if some of the text seems familiar it is cos i literally got snipits from about 4 sites sorry!

    Right the D.O.E Tunnels in Dover are a large system of tunnels in the area of dovers western docks.The firebrigade plans of the 1970's name these tunnels D.O.E,they where owned by the Dover storage company which is now in use by a shipping company.
    The tunnels are thought to date from around the 1800's and over the years have had work performed on them at some time,they are also believed to have been used during WW2 and also as a shelter ,and there is a stairway which is believed to form a link to the main train tunnel and rumour of an underground platform of some sort....
    There was a tunnel connecting the D.O.E to the lower oil mills but ive read that was blocked off after a fire in the 90's
    Also lesser known is that in front of these tunnels was the military barracks named the oil mills barracks..and that the main occupants where the east surrey regiment,and that the barracks where also used to "detain or station" conscientious objectors at some point during the war.
    And one last thing what a place friggin huge .right enuff of all that on with the pics !

















    Right the next few where from inside the burnt out section,there was some dodgy looking foam material with what looked like some sort of spores growing on it down here and a very large breezeblockwall similar to one seen from the outside..





    Thanks for looking sorry bout the quality of the scotts caves!
