LYDDEN SPOUT : DOVER, KENT - UK MID April 2022



**WE CLIMBED THE WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER ** - Bottom > Top

Here are some still pics from one of our latest explores.


I strongly advise no one attempts to climb this cliff face as its extremely dangerous especially in wet weather. Luckily for us it was a dry day.


LYDDEN SPOUT

Lydden Spout Battery is a World War II coastal defence battery built in cc1941 west of Dover.

Originally armed with three 6-inch Mark VII naval guns on Mark V mountings, later upgraded to Mark XXIV guns on the same mountings.

Fan Bay Battery to the east of Dover is built to the same plan.

Two single storey brick buildings beside a public footpath are on the south side of the A20.

The smaller of the two buildings, closer to the A20, was the Warrant Officer’s and Sergeants' Mess. This is a rectangular brick building with an extension on one end with an entrance porch and a ladder up to the roof on the wall alongside.

The second larger building is roughly ‘T’ shaped; this was the dining room and cookhouse.

Both buildings have been completely stripped of all fixtures and fittings including windows and doors and are now used as cattle sheds.

All other buildings on the site have been demolished although some footings are visible as are the roads.

A dangerous and crazy climb up Lydden Spout/Dover : UK .. to the Lydden Spout Tunnel/s.
I strongly advise no one attempts to climb this cliff face as its extremely dangerous !!

I think like me @obscurity are referring to this, its just unnecessary tbh Im sure we have all done things just as sketchy & advising against doing something on here is normally a red rag to a bull.
why not just put "the climb up to this was a bit sketchy"
this guy managed to do it without making it sound like death was imminent!

I think that all comes down to how confident at climbing the person is. ..its more to advice of caution ⚠ than 'click bate' and judging by the memorial close to the bottom of the guy that fell from the top to the bottom complete with his bicycle that is still there..

I'd rather warn people than not mention it at all or in a watered down way.

The explore of the original post looks great though EXACTLY the kind of thing I'd be looking for myself, and a bit of steep ground is the icing on top!
