Report - AEI Cable Works: Air Raid Shelter, Kent : July 2017

Access level med/difficult

After a long time searching for these, (2 yrs ) I was finally given 3 ways to get there. But as the tunnels are in the hands of council and monitored I wanted to be careful.

ACCESS DETAILS REMOVED!

When inside, wow was I surprised. The tunnels were huge, long and high.

History
I can not find much history on these, only that they were WW2 air raid shelters, with men & woman sections and sick bay. Rumor has it they run to the Thames, that is some way away, around 3 miles. I cant confirm this as some of the tunnels had been bricked off at the ends.

I will add info as I research it more. Im planning a second trip soon. So for now thought id share my first July explore as Ive not added anything for over 5 weeks .

So here are some photos. Most of the big tub things were used as toilets as some had loo seats on. There were remains of sink holders, and pipe work for water and air vents for circulation.

the more recent access isnt medium to difficult unless you missed the blatantly easy way in..but hey ho the place is slowly being destroyed by the locals..nice that you got in though its still a decent shelter

Looks good, but why describe access? Anyone with an ounce of a brain would be able to figure it out from what you have said

I added access as I found it difficult as the easy way I hadn't found. I have just been put right on general etiquette to use on the forum. So apologies for the upset

Been other partys since then
Yeah so i have heard from pals :) it makes me laugh at the access. Still the same i'm told lovely bit of space would be good to see it reused in the redevelopment but unfortunatley they plan to back fill each entrance tunnel with 20ton of concrete :(
