Tied this visit in with the Coopers shelter which is nearby.


WW2 Radio Station built in conection with the d day invasion, this was connected by cable to the Fort above.

This is a great place with a main entrance going in 160' going through a l/h turn and then down a set of stairs to another level, with what was once a Radio room, the tunnel caries on through another room on to the escape exit.
Lots of interesting things including the remains of the old power cable coming through the ceiling, The Scull carving on the wall, a nook where another lot of cables came through.
The tunnels are part chalk wall and part Steel reinforced, some of the floors are concrete.
Bit of a slipery climb.
