Ramsgate Tunnels Westcliff End Photos

 I thought a guess where in Thanet wouldn't work for these. The photos were taken back in 2010 and 2011. This is the part of the Ramsgate Tunnel system with the entrances at Spencer Square, Liverpool Lawn, Brewery (Waitrose), Ramsgate Hospital Mortuary and near Jacob's Ladder.
In some cases you will notice the same shot is taken with the camera on different exposures

The map may help you to work it out, we sell a large paper version at Michael's Bookshop in Ramsgate, this come rolled up in a tube and is too difficult and too expensive to post.

You can go on a tunnel tour of the Eastcliff end of the tunnels here is the link to the tunnels website

Here is the tunnel engineer's plan which may also help

Back in the day, when I worked for a sort of mechanic for The Pleasurama Group I'm afraid to say we used the Eastcliff end as a sort of rubbish dump, the photo above shows the rubbish being removed from that end.

The Westcliff end isn't easily accessible so it is pretty much as it was left after WW2
 This bit was under Ramsgate Hospital

Here at Michael's Bookshop, where I pretend to work in Ramsgate it's been a fairly quiet day and I have been catching up with correspondence. Because tomorrow is Thursday the bookshop will be closed.

Post a Comment

Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
