    Default Lydden Spout Deep Shelter Dover April 2013

    This has been the one shelter i dover that's eluded me due to the entrance or rather the route down to it!three years ago i had a go and last year but my body would not allow me to go down the ever disappearing cliff path to it..

    Fast forward 3 years and with a lot of encouragement from the guys i finally got down to it ..cheers lads
    Visited with SpaceInvader Obscurity and UrbanJunky was a great meet up and pukka day out

    Brief blagged history

    Lydden Spout Battery was constructed in 1941 on the cliffs between Dover and Folkestone. This consisted of three 6” naval gun positions, magazines, gun rooms, a plotting room and a large deep shelter. The guns were removed in the 1970’s but the foundations are still visible to date. All underground parts are in a good condition. Above ground most buildings were demolished but an officers mess remains and is now used as a cow shed.

    Thanks for looking and im rather chuffed i got down there..thanks again to the guys for getting me down there
