first report so go easy, saw @silentwalker 's report on this place, was relatively close on business and the hotel was boring at 2am so thought i would give this place a visit.

after a quick spot of research i had found the rough location of the entrance and headed out (weird look from the hotel receptionist as i left carrying a tripod with my camera around my neck)

history (blatantly stolen from silentwalker...sorry buddy)
The company W T Henley has always been highly regarded for the manufacture of cable and electrical components and was clearly the company of choice when a system had to be devised as a countermeasure to the growing threat of German magnetic mines during the Second World War. As a result, a new site was constructed in 1939 in Gravesend for W T Henley and a complex of tunnels built underneath to provide air raid shelter for the company’s employees.
