Second World War defences at Langdon Hole near Dover
Second World War defences at Langdon Hole near Dover
Under Dover Castle and the White Cliffs are a maze of tunnels which were used during the Second World War and can still be visited as part of the tour of Dover Castle. To the east, beyond Langdon Hole, is a zig zag path cut into the chalk cliff face which takes the walker down to more gun emplacements as seen here. Nearby, a ladder leads down to the beach. At low tide the wreck of the SS Falcon, which caught fire and was beached there in 1926 can be seen, and its remains
walked on.
