Situated at Langdon Hole to the east of Dover Harbour, this is an underground system dating from WW2. Although it was open to explorers between its decommissioning (shortly after the end of the war) and the late 1970's, which resulted in it being heavily vandalised, it had remained sealed between 1979 and 2002. The entrances to the complex are situated in a chalk bank at the northern end of Langdon Hole, they descend very steeply underground and are then doglegged to provide protection from blast. The entrances were originally protected by small brick bunkers which were later demolished and the rubble used to help seal off access to the tunnels. The eastern entrance was designed for pedestrian access only, unlike the western entrance which has rails set into the stairs to allow heavy equipment to be raised and lowered when necessary. The design of the main part of the complex is very similar to the underground communications bunker at Long Hill in Dover and this site had a similar function - both acted as broadcast feeds for DUMPY beneath the Castle. There are obvious signs of communication use such as cable ducts and pipes rising from one of the rooms to terminate at the surface, originally inside a building that stood directly above the complex.

Visited with Ian and Adam.
