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

The building "next door" is the secondary entrance to this building - it's like the TARDIS! Went in a couple of months ago, some remains of WWII posters are the highlights (haven't posted anything as they're similar to the pics at the beginning of this thread). Last rumour I heard was that the Bunker was going to be turned into a WWI Museum in time for 2014. If you're interested my pics are here:

I'm sure I have seen this building on the forum before, has there been any photos of the building next door to it?

Barrels are stored in the top, they look as if the have been there for a long time.

The building next door on the right.

The top of the door has been bent back, that's handy,

Two inside photos.

I took these photos yesterday.

Just found this:

Quoted from

"Approximately half way down the hill is a concrete structure from the Second World War. This was communications centre that was probably part of the network feeding information from shipping in the channel back to the Enigma project in Bletchley Park.

"This complex consists of five large rooms with connecting passageways. As with all such buildings, it is showing signs of decay from neglect. Should we wait until a future version of Time Team digs up what is left in the year 2500 or should we invest time and resources into preserving it now - before the decay has gone too far? This building should be converted into a proper military museum dedicated not only to the part that the town played in the wars, but also to the function that it actually carried out.

One or more of the rooms could be dedicated to the part that the Canadians played in the Great War since this could be a major tourism incentive from that part of the world."
