Looking out of hole
|Although not recently discovered we went to have a look at 2 holes from the WW2 era in Hamstreet. The first hole had about a foot or more of water in it when we arrived but this was quickly pumped out to reveal a small concrete lined and concrete floored chamber about 10ft deep
|Access was by foot rings in the sides and the floor would have originally been wooden boarding
Original Slatted Wooden Floor
|The only thing of interest in this hole was some graffiti possibly dating back to it’s early days
|The second hole, smaller in diameter produced little of interest after a couple of hours digging and has been abandoned. This is possibly an escape route from a WW2 post but the original entrance has been lost over time.
