Visited with @Minor and @Dora Grew Up

Short history:
The caves, or rather tunnels, are in the former Winchelsea Quarry in Dover. They comprise four parallel and evenly spaced tunnels driven in at right angles to the quarry face, with irregular linking cross tunnels and offshoots for latrines. Three of the tunnels then draw together and then two tunnels continue on, a shorter one with two 45 degree offsets heading towards the Westmount building while the other one heading for a smaller chalk quarry in Tower Hamlets is longer and more sinuous, apparently the king and queen took refuge here during a shelling in 1944.

The Explore:
As the garage Grounds which has the main entrances in was closed, we decided to go look for the other entrance nearby, didn't take too long to find the silly little hole i was going to have to slide in through, i say slide through, i was pulled through by Minor as i couldn't move my arms or legs too much after about halfway but non the less we were inside.

on to the pics
