Massive shout out to obs for showing me this one. Saw SI and Wevs report on this place nearly a year ago now and had no idea where it was and still had no idea til i was taken there. Visited with Obscurity, St0rm and Wevsky.

No real history on the place other than one piece of old graffitti that reads: J.E. PENGELLY 2nd battalion W.R.R NOV-17.
They are the west riding regiment, the duke of wellingtons private battalion that were used as reserves for our army along the kent coast line. They were based at coastal defence shelters along the coast. This is an example of one used during WW1.
