Two tunnels were constructed during WW2, one of them being Langdon Hole often referred to as "Dumpy B" the other Long Hill "dumpy A". Both sets of tunnels have a similar construction of steel shuttering with iron girders for support, typical of military tunnels of this period, and consist of two long parallel tunnels connected at either end, each having two exits. The main difference between the two sets of tunnels is that the Langdon ones have two inclined entrances, whereas the Long Hill tunnels are dug into the hillside, and the lower entrance is an adit in the lower part of the hill. The Long Hill tunnels, located on a grassy down above Buckland, were open for many years but the entrance was covered with chalk in around 2001, when the hillside was landscaped and access is no longer possible. The Langdon Hole tunnels, in the rear of the natural dip in the landscape, known as 'Langdon Hole', on the cliffs between Dover and St. Margaret's, have suffered from being open to vandals throughout the 1970s, and much of the inner lining has been destroyed. However, many features, such as ventilation pipes still remain.

The Explore:
After a long day of exploring various sites in and around Dover this was the last site we hit, it was pitch black and we were all knackered by the time we got here and nearly gave up trying to find the entrance, however perseverance paid off, it wasn't long and we had all squeezed inside. not as big as some deep shelters but by no means the smallest but i didn't care because i was underground again.
