The remains and underlying pit of Drawbridge 2 in Tunnel 2 showing the ramp tunnel leading up to the surface of the North Center Bastion 'island'.
Counterweights are sunk into the tunnel floor either side of the viewer's location one of which can be seen in this photo.
Blue Orb 2 appeared on the wall to the viewers left.
The North Center Bastion is only part of Dover's extensive Napoleonic defenses - click on Western Heights and then check the tag list for all the locations covered (eg Drop Redoubt, Grand Shaft, North Entrance - more will be added as time goes on).
