Dover’s hidden past.

These photos (click to enlarge) show the hidden ruins of Dover’s past, which everyone seems to have forgotten about. I was taken here, yesterday evening and was shocked to see a whole hidden world of ruined war time buildings; that had just been left and forgotten. They’ve plunged into an abandoned state, constantly being vandalised and misused. I admire the work of ‘The Western Heights Preservation Society’ who seem to make it their duty to protect this forgotten world.

I encourage any one in the local area to go and visit the Drop Redoubt, Grand Shaft and these hidden war time ruins. It is strange to think that such a huge area of ruined building could remain hidden – and forgotten to almost everyone.
