Visited with Weeble. After a long search for Fan Bay deep shelter, which resulted in a fail - although looking at some maps, I think we only missed it by a few metres - we decided to forgo that and head on to this one. My first deep shelter, and a fairly fun and relaxed visit, with a few fairly polite kids also looking around and being careful not to get in our photos. As a lot of it is quite similar, we decided to play around a bit with lighting.

A little bit of history:
The deep shelter at St. Margaret's Battery has three entrances, two were behind the guns and are now sealed. The third is close to the cliff edge. This is unlined and the entrance runs down a slope parallel with the cliff face and then turns left inland. At this point there is also an opening to the right in the cliff face. This tunnel continues unlined until the main shelter itself. The shelter is two parallel tunnels with an additional connecting tunnel that was added for the use of medical services. The shelter could house the 4 officer's and 165 other ranks from the battery in its 3,480ft of floor space with an average of 60ft cover. This shelter was constructed by 171 Tunnelling Coy Royal Engineers.

amazed this one remains so clean considering how easily accessible it has always been. Good effort, good to see more people hitting dover. A date in the report title is standard here though!
