  5. These photos are fantastic. I used to live in Dover. In the late 80's as a teenager we used to play in the tunnels which I think were these ones. One end would run from the sports centre car park and you could get all the way to the back of some houses near the eastern docks. I remember having to climb a small section of cliff to get to a tunnel opening (I think it's been bricked up) which you walked down and this eventually would drop down into what I would describe as a crouch height sewer tunnel. You then walked back on yourself in this tiny tunnel and eventually ended up in a kind of square chamber. We had to climb up to the top where there was a small square opening we could pull ourselves up into. This then led into the main network of tunnels. Brilliant fun!!!
