Day 1

Met Madcap_Laughs in Canterbury with my mate Adam, and drove down to Dover for a work day at Drop Redoubt in the Western Heights, where we me up with the teentunnelteam. Unfortunately some wanker had superglued the inside of all the padlocks and the work day was cancelled. But the guy in charge went home to get a blow torch and managed to open the padlocks for the tour later that day. So we headed off to see St Martins Deep Shelter and Battery

Day 2

On the second day it was just me and Adam, and since we had an English Heritage card we decided to go for a look round Dover castle, and as the tours of the tunnels were fully booked, we managed to just walk around at our own pace, which was good for taking sneaky pics ☺.

Also got a nice pic of the sea (bit irrelevant but still)

After this we headed round the outside of the castle walls to find Horse-shoe and Hudsons Bastion

First we climbed up this

Only to find it nicely bricked up

After we walked round some more we found what could be an alternate entrance into the castle inner moats, if it hadn’t been for the rolls of razor wire and huge fence.
Ever get the feeling your not wanted??

Day 3

On day 3 we went over to St Margaret's

Firstly we went to have a look for the Z Rocket Battery and deep shelter, which is easily the biggest shelter I have ever been in

After this we headed over to South Forelands to find the two deep shelters and plotting rooms

We first found the second deep shelter, and had some fun with tea lights, sorry OT had to be done,

I did have a quick look down the plotting room but Adam didn’t trust the rusty ladder, so I didn’t spend long down there. I also went to find the first deep shelter, but unfortunately it had been sealed.

I will be going back down to Dover around the 21st of November, as there is another work day at Drop Redoubt, and if you go on a work day you get to have a look around the whole of Drop Redoubt, unlike on the tour.
