Dover - Deep Shelters and plotting rooms

Visited 2005-2010

You can imagine with weatlh of underground places that Dover has hidden away. The area of UK mainland the Germans would have seen first when invading during World War II.
So naturally it was the place that needed to be defended and also the best place for monitoring ships in the channel and any German broadcasts, aswell as directing our own aircraft.

Thousands of people a year walk along the footpaths of the coastline around Dover, little do they know that just under the surface are miles of tunnels where people worked to secure victory in World War II.
There are deep shelters which were used when enemy aircraft were attacking, these are the same design and many others around the country, there were also plotting rooms were our aircraft were directed and where the enemy were followed to watch there movements.
Although the passages are pretty much stripped of everything you still get a feel or what it must have been like, with hundreds of staff working together in damp cold conditions and dim lights.
Now just rusting iron and corroded wiring it may not be long before these passages are in accessable and are forgotton.

Below are seperate galleries of the different shelters, plotting rooms, magazines and other world war 2 relate infrastructure found in Dover

Fan Bay Deep Shelter - A deep shelter for use by military personal in the event of an air raid on Dover.
Would have mainly been used by those firing the anti aircraft gun at Fan Bay and supporting soldiers.

Fan Bay Magazine - The magazine would have held the ammunition used in the anti aircraft guns at Fan Bay, there are 3 of these magazines in closed proximity to where the anti aircraft gun would have been.

South Foreland Plotting Room - Would have either been used in the directing of ships in the English channel or would have been used to relay information of the incoming enemy air attack to the anti aircraft gunners.
