Hi Alastair!

Yes, that's the entrance to the Deep Shelter!

There's more about Fan Bay here: http://www.kenthistoryforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=18641.0 (I hope I've done that right - still a Newbie! If not, the thread can be found under General/News/Fan Bay.)

Agree with Dinsy - they are brilliant photos, Trikeman - well done!
Am I right in thinking that the entrance to the tunnels is at two o-clock from the mirrors, or is that something else? If it is the tunnels they're far nearer the road than when I went down them.

I took these pics in Dec 2014 for the Kent Archaeological Soc magazine - they kindly let me have a look inside the tunnels before they opened to the public. I promised not to share the photos publicly until they had made all the press releases - I guess I'm safe now!
Excellent effort and a really interesting addition for visitors who have already been in the dover tunnels. Good to see the concrete sound mirrors unearthed after all these years
Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast
