Brief bit of history copied from the net...

South Flank Casemates, Dover: During a new fear of invasion from Napoleon III two new dry moats where added to the existing citadel defences. The northern and the southern moat both had their own casemates built. Between these there was also a defensive caponier built, but sadly this was filled in during the 1960's by the Dover Corporation and they gradually destroyed many parts of the Western Heights.

The southern casemates are a lot larger than the northern casemates, with eight separate rooms whereas the northern casemates only had six.
The explore was a spur of the moment thing as i couldnt stand another day staring at the pc..SilverRainbow txt me to say he was free so we headed over to this spot.I first came here about a year and a half ago and only managed the south casemates as the north can only be reached via a crawl through some small chalk tunnels and a squeeze through the Pipe..going in was fine but knowing how tight it was made me a little edgy when wedged in the pipe..Eh have covered the access with anti climb paint as well as trying to seal it all up...

On with some pics which i have tried not to go mad with ..
