    Default St Margaret's Battery Shelter (Z-Rocket), Kent.


    Now home to the local pigeon population this small deep shelter was purposely built to protect troops of the nearby Z-Rocket from incoming axis bombs during WWII. There was two main entrances down into the shelter and one emergency escape exit. All in all, a great little splore, one of many in the area.

    Un-lined section which leads to the emergency escape exit.



    Wardens room/office, with the un-lined section in the distance.



    Main tunnels are lined with steel girders braced with corrugated steel sheet.



    Toilets.





    Steps leading up towards main entrance, now infilled with bricks and rubble.



    The original timber and plywood lining still remains, although damaged and decomposing.



    Last but by no means least...

    Great looking place, nice set.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
