This bunker along Road Of Remembrance in Folkestone is believed to have been a WW2 naval communication facility. It originally had two entrances several rooms and toilets, with a ventilation room above the complex.

You can still see the remains of several WW2 posters on the walls of this place.

There may be plans to renovate this bunker and open it to the public as part of the plans for marking the centenary of the outbreak of hostilities in WW1 which takes place in 2014.

There's also a rather nice map of the place here.

It's definitely one of the best condition WW2 bunkers I've been in. :)

Thanks for looking!
