So on Saturday morning I was supposed to be in Dover at 9.30. After a very heavy drinking session on Friday night and climbing in somewhere that I definitely shouldn't have been, and almost didn't get out from, I was woken at 9.45 by silverainbow saying he was going to be a bit late. In my drunken state I made my way to the station, and was able to get into Dover by 10.30, be up at St Margarets by 11, and forget my tripod in the process :rolleyes: Cheers to Silverainbow for letting me borrow his, even if the release didn't fit

Explored with Silverainbow, Will, and Starlight. Cheers guys :thumb

Some history from Underground Kent:
At St Margaret's Bay there is the underground deep shelter for St Margarets 5.5" Battery. This site was the first one to use the unrotated projectile known as the Z - Rocket which was a anti - aircraft (AA) weapon. It was officially known as a UP or unrotated projectile. It was not particularly accurate, but the thinking was that if fired in large enough amounts an enemy plane just might get hit.
