News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

A couple more bits from South Foreland. Sorry pictures aren't that great, it was getting late in the day and couldn't be bothered with the tripod.

I have asked on another forum but didn't really have a satisfactory answer. Why are there two large shelters at South Foreland, one well away from the guns, and why two plotting rooms?

A couple of pics while the battery here was in use.  The second picture shows on of the deep shelter entrances.
