A view of eastern end of the tunnel which with Bridge 1 and Bridge 2 form the North Entrance to Dover's Napoleonic defenses on the Western Heights.
The righthand arch is the single-lane road, used by traffic until the 1960s, and the right a guardroom.
The North Entrance is only part of the fortifications on this part of the North Downs - click on Western Heights and then check the tag list for all the locations covered (eg Drop Redoubt, Grand Shaft, St Martins Battery, North Center Bastion - more will be added as time goes on).
There is also a video of the North Entrance which has been split into two to meet YouTube requirements:

Despite what I said in the first Comment, the guard room is actually on the left of the photo at the top of this page.
I've finally taken a photo of the air or ventilation shaft, located half-way down the tunnel, where it emerges above ground.
Click on the following link to see the chimney stack above the guard room.
The "new" North Military Road ("Military Hill"), which cuts through the moats connecting the North Entrance to the Drop Redoubt, is just out of shot on the right.
