I have visited these tunnels many times but never captured a complete set i was happy with.
Went down with the fisheye this time after and evening of fail elsewhere..
These tunnels, in the former Winchelsea Quarry, were used during WW2 as
air raid shelters. They were constructed in the form of four parallel
corridors with two intersecting passages. There were four original
entrances in the quarry and two more which spur off from a junction at
the opposite end of the tunnel. The quarry entrances are now used as
workshops by the company which owns the tunnels and the other two
entrances have been sealed. One was located behind the Westmount
building and the other was located in another chalk pit in Tower
Hamlets, where the houses of 'The Abbots' road are now located.
According to ARP records of the time, the shelter was designed to
accommodate just over 1,000 people. Some wartime photos still remain of
people sheltering in these tunnels as well as many dated etchings on
the chalk walls..
