    Scott's Caves, named after the firm of Dyers that occupied the site next door to Southern Region's (and latterly British Rail's/Sealink's/Hoverspeed's) Packet Yard. The yard no longer exists, but the caves do, tucked away in the undergrowth.
    The origin of this set of tunnels, like so many of those seafront tunnels cut into the cliffs in Dover, is unclear. To the rear of the tunnels is a well shaft that led up to the Grand Shaft Barracks on the cliffs above.
    The tunnels take the form of two parallel, vaulted rooms, with an interconnecting passageway and a number of small alcoves. At the end of the second, larger room a short passage leads to the well pit and shaft.

    Now none of us like flash, but I wasn't going to hang out over the well, light painting for art's sake:gay

    Some left overs from Hoverspeed's past.
