    Default Winchelsea caves..Dover


    Visited a few deep level shelters lately with man gone wrong.thanks to gromr for the tip odds,much appreciated.this was a bit different to the other tunnels we have been in as its part caves built next to a quarry.which is still in use and you could virtually walk into it from the rear tunnels.the layout is similar to other deep level shelters with parrallel tunnels.the tunnels were first bored out in the First World War to test am chine for boring out tunnels on the western front.it was planned to be used with the intention to protect locals from the zepplin attacks,but never actually saw any use.then later on in the Second World War,and could house 1,350 people.

    Very nice Mickey, those tunnels look like a maze. But - those chairs??? I did wonder what they were at first until I took a second look.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
