WW2 tunnel, Dover Castle
Starting in 1797, tunnels under Dover Castle were used as barracks. They were extended at the beginning of the Second World War to provide a bomb-proof operation control centre. The evacuation from Dunkirk in 1940 was controlled from here.
This tunnel contains telephone signal repeater equipment.
