    There have been a fair few reports on these ones so I’ll keep the history brief:

    Esplanade -

    Basically two parallel tunnels. The foremost one runs from the esplanade to the other side of the cliff (sheer drop into the briny). It also has a spur which connects if to the gun emplacement that can be seen sticking out of the cliff overlooking the bay. The rear most tunnels far wall has been concreted off although you can peek round the edges and make out a void behind. This could be due to this set being re-used smugglers tunnels.

    Rear most tunnel - short by comparison to the first

    Deep shelter -

    The 5.5â€￾ gun battery that stood above this shelter during WW2 no longer remains although the shelter is still accessible via a possibly unfinished, unlined section. This unlined section leads into the cliff and meets one of two tunnels which lie parallel to one another and (roughly) with the cliff face. These two are fully lined and connected at regular intervals by smaller tunnels.

    Each of the parallel tunnels has an entrance at one end - opposite to each other of course, both of which have been blocked or back filled

    Thanks for looking!
