    Report - AEI Cable Works Air Raid Shelter, Northfleet. September 2020

    Like many others, I hit this awesome location some years ago and thoroughly enjoyed subsequent visits.

    Report - Fort Clarence East Castemates, August 2020

    Really excellent place, incredibly well tucked away and as a result I didn't see a single piece of modern rubbish inside, not even a monster munch packet or a stella can. Nice to see somewhere a bit older than the usual Victorian Palmerston Forts after having seen plenty of those. Explored with...
