So a plan was hatched, me and the urban junky rolled up in Dover to meet Liamch and wifebeater.
We planned to do a whistlestop tour of the common sites like Detached Bastion, St. Martins Deep Shelter and Langdon battery. We would then hit some sites we hadn't seen later on in the evening.

First up, Detached Bastion.

Didnt bother getting many shots here, as this was my 3rd visit.

Then it was time to go see St. Martins, just up the road.

St. Martins Deep shelter, originally a napoleonic magazine for the nearby battery. Extended to include a deep shelter during ww2

We finished up here, and headed for the 2nd and final deep shelter of the night, St. Margarets aka z rocket.

The air here wasn't great, the place was falling part, and there was a daunting hole of death that is route one to the bottom of the white cliffs.

By this time its fair to say we were all rather tired, but we agreed to have a crack at oil mills which would be the most audacious attempt of the night given the location. Those who have been will know.

After finishing up in oil mills we headed out, bidding farewell to liam and wifebeater, and then went to get some much deserved sleep!

The morning after we stopped at South Foreland to have a look at one of the plotting rooms briefly

Then it was time for home and some more sleep. :)

Peace
