Hudsons Bastion 2019

"Hudson's Bastion is the most complex of the 19th Century defences in Dover Castle's East Ditch.  It comprises the fortified bastion earthwork itself, with an underground guardroom, a large caponnier flanking the ditch and a long, two-level loopholed musketry gallery.  The entrance to these outworks from within the castle is through a long tunnel, known as Hudson's Passage.  The underground sections of Hudson's Bastion remain in good condition and are an excellent example of 19th Century fortification."

After visiting back in 2011 and taking some pretty shit pictures if i do say so myself the chance to visit popped up so at the last minute i dragged my backside out to go retake pictures since ive actually learned how to use my camera!

Abandoned Trains Uk

Not much to say about this ,one of the lads knew it from childhood and the Train and carriages have been left to the elements ever since..The level of decay on the wooden carriages is lovely and the spray painted graff has turned to a peely flakey texture as the wood has rotted..I like trains they're cool

Thanks to Obscurity for the invite and silentwalker for the company and headsup..

Some pics form a pleasant few hours wandering about..
