Over the years I have walked past this location always wrongly assuming it was something completely different. That is of course till I noticed that the entry point wasn't secure. Well it would have been rude and unbritish to not take a butcher's. What a lovely surprise. I proceeded inside to what I initially perceived may have been an ARP or dressing station due to the supportive steel rings with corrugated shuttering. Waiting a moment to ensure no one else was inside exploring or perhaps working, I started to chill realising I had this gem all to myself. As I went further in it was apparent that construction was not made with tall people in mind (my poor back)!! From the entrance 50 steps down lead to a 190 feet long tunnel which ends with a 12 feet diameter vertical chalk shaft running both above to Casemate Level and below the tunnel where water level is reached after 25 feet (and if you fall into this bad boy then ya ain't getting out). Casemate waste drains fed into a brick-lined shaft that was tunnelled through the cliff to connect the underground barracks latrines to the sea.

its actually called the great well tunnel, part of the castle and feeds up to the other levels Annex, casemate, dumpy. Its been posted here before i think. I saw someone had butchered the gates etc along here. Shame certain idiots can't do these things properly without a path of destruction.

Yeah, was aware of where it lead but was informed that technically it's an air shaft but is referred to as a Well. But, that's just what a chap told me. I agree that certain folk will smash their way in regardless.

Theres information online if you do some research and hunt around, it was always a well. its been fucking butchered, its been doable for years and will now face the same fate as other locations around the castle which have just had cameras etc installed and plates welded over them...the goons will learn when they run out of old locations to rip open.
