PostSubject: Report - Langdon Hole Deep Shelter, Dover - March 2010   Mon May 17, 2010 1:44 am

Located at Langdon Hole, in East Langdon, lays an air raid shelter deep underground. I can’t find too much information on this place but it is believed it was formerly known as Dumpy ‘B’ and used as a communications shelter during WW2. Also located in Dover was Longhill shelter which was formerly known as dumpy ‘A’. These two shelters were of an almost identical layout. Langdon hole Deep shelter originally had two entrances. One was steel lined and the other was un-lined chalk. After the WW2 there was no further need for the shelter and it was capped off with the original entrances destroyed. Over the years the top soil has caused a small opening to appear at one of the original entrances meaning that the rather hidden entrance is now accessible and this almost forgotten shelter has regular visits from historians and explorers.
I had visited this shelter many times over the last couple of years but in my most recent visit I finally photographed the place.
Visited with Urban Junkie, Shadow, Maniac, Frosty, Skydiver, Cave Zombie and Scrimshady.

Originally there would have been a staircase entering the tunnel but over the years it has collapsed leaving a steep slope at the entrance

The second entrance is now sealed. This is the un-lined/secondary entrance

At the bottom of the entrance is a small room and spur leading to the main complex
