We decided to venture out further than usual and decided to see what we could find in Dover.

This was our most favorite explore of the day and it was ALOT bigger than we had expected...

The 'Esplanade' Tunnels comprise of three sections.. named Athol Guilford and Trevanion. Athol is the name given to the Eastern area, and Trevanion is the name of the Western area and the two areas join via a very long tunnel which is known as the 'Guilford Tunnel'.

The tunnel, and East and West areas were started way back in the cc1800s I have not found information on their use back then but do know they were worked on more up and through the cc1930s and cc1940s and were in use during WW2.

The explore was very enjoyable and a few things we saw made us laugh along the way it wasn't until we found the Jenga Tower that I realised that this was that location.. I had seen previous pictures of it but thought it had been knocked down..

Upon closer inspection it had been re erected and the names that were previously listed on each wooden piece was now in a different order and some of the names appeared upside down where the pieces had been re arranged.

It's an inventive and extremely well executed structure to add support to the ceiling area and is equally impressive to look at.
