PostSubject: Noah's ark Tunnels &Winchelsea Tunnels 27th july 2010   Tue Jul 27, 2010 5:03 pm

Right first of me and unclebulgaria went out to have a look see if noahs ark was accessible,which it was due to vandals stripping the building and basically wrenching open every door they could..the dividing wall from the barwicks to noah's ark road section had been smashed down ..well brickwork and the door with strudy lock gone..we worked our way right up to the noah's ark road entrance heard cars and a womans voice then the crackle of a police walki talkie..assuming they where inside and just ahead of us we stealthily turned backtowards our entrance expecting a police escort home..but as it happens nothing there..so after that we headed dopwn to winchelsea,westmount &priory hill chalk quarry which i believe was dug out for the chalk to be used on the dover harbour work..the tunnels had a lot of storage inside the big double doors which where wide open and the main tunnel up was tricky to clamber over till we got to a left turn..and going further forward was pretty much blocked now not knowing the layout of said tunnels that well not sure where that lead too..but we ventured round and got to the Fiveways Junction..where 2 sections had been blocked up with breeze blocks and thank you to whoever removed enuff for us to keep going..my lighting was a cree lenser which dissapointingly didnt have the promised flood to spot lense ..well it did it just didnt work that well so excuse the lighting ,should have taken me maglite..right on with noahs ark as many pics as we got before we quickly went back away from the voice of the police lady with the radio !!

Right on with some pics..not my best but s**t happens

















Right like i said only took pics on the way up then got cut short due to the sounds of the fuzz upp ahead
Now some from thewinchelsea etc tunnels..























Thanks for looking shame my lenser cree with the spot too flood Failed doing the spot but fun was had..also found an old private shelter in ramsgate on a building site where the caffyns garage used to be but small mainly backfilled so didnt even get the camera out!!

nice efforts there mate. Good to hear noahs ark is open. i aint been down there for ages. Winchelsea is a nice one and alot biggers than you would expect. I think you miss-judged ur focusing slightly but better luck next time.
Thanks for sharing and a good write up too.

polite way of putting it mate..misjudged just a tad..did the usual trick that works normally torch in front to focus..had trouble with my lcd display to actually see what id taken in full size..but live and learn obs..gutted about the lack of spot on my bloody L5 couldnt get a light at the end of the tunnel so well on flood..still was a good laugh ..shame barwicks end is soo trashed!!

yeah its a shame your trip sounds like it was cut a little short but at least you didnt have any trouble and got your photos. This place is now sealed once again tho im suprised due to the condition of the buildings in the compound and lack of security
