Not the biggest explore but this really took some work to do.
Situated under the cannon rooms at dover castle we found this after a 3 hour trudge round the moats of dover.
After gaining access to the 1st level we were met with a 20ft shaft with a old ladder still in it ,climbing down that took us into a passage cut out of the chalk, where one tunnel led to the bottom of another shaft and another branched of under the wishing well {the tourist part}.

We went back to get the ladder to climb the next shaft to the second level and this is where the fun started, the workers who left it there had backfilled the passage with chalk making it impossible to pull the ladder out, Q a return trip 2 nights later with a pick axe and shovel.

All in all we moved a small skip full of chalk and earth to free the ladder, there was 2 more shafts after this which we had to repeat the process.

All good fun was coverd head to foot in chalk dust and shit by the time we finished and wasnt that big of a explore, but its untouched by the spray painting chavs and was kind of rewarding to do having put so much time and effort into it :crazy

Re: dover fort {pick-axe alley} report

Arrrh pick-axe alley, good times :)

I'm suprised we didn't wake the whole of Dover up whilst moving that ladder about, noisy bastard thing.
We went in black, and came out white, and half a stone lighter :D
