"Video of a recent visit to one of several deep level shelters built between 1941-1942 below the city to give refuge to the general public during the time of the blitz in WW2."

That is fascinating - thanks for posting it.

 

I have a great interest in WW2 history, maybe because I was born 20 miles from central London during the Blitz in 1940.

The tunnels around Dover are worth a look

 

I used to explore them when I was a teen in the 80's , before they were opened up

miles of them & a large fortress as well , the Drop Reboubt & the Citadel

 

amazing to think what is under our feet

 

 

edit - we went thru a lot of the Dover tunnels , even past blockages etc , strangely never see a rat or mouse
 

a couple of bird nests in the firing slots , but no rodents - I guess there was no food for them to eat
