There's loads of these dotted around the Dover area. This one is one of the better ones in my opinion, and is one of the least reported so it would seem, mainly because it can be tricky to find if you don't know where it is (where as some of the others are easy to just stumble across)

They were all built to a similar design, and all built for the same reason - to shelter the military personnel manning the various guns and other defenses along the Dover cliffs during WW2. They don't really have names, but this one is often called South Forelands shelter number 1 to distinguish it from it's smaller counterpart just up the road. incidentally, someone's been having a clean out down here, and the floor of one of the tunnels was swept clean.

Only a few photos, as there's not a lot left really, and there's only so many photos of tunnels you can take.
