Anti-submarine nets on the hillside above the North Entrance of the Napoleonic defenses embedded into the Western Heights, Dover UK.
I originally thought these were the cables used to operate the drawbridge section of the Inner Bridge. After posting in the Dover Western Heights - North Entrance thread of the Kent History Forum, however, it now appears that they are probably World War One anti-submarine nets moved to the Western Heights during WW2. Dunno why, though :)

At the other end of the tunnel there is a Guard Room: click to see a view of the chimney stack above the Guard Room and a view of the chimney stack from a different angle.
I've also recently uploaded a photo of the air or ventilation shaft where it emerges on the surface from the tunnel beneath (about half-way along its length).
There is also a video of the North Entrance which has been split into two to meet YouTube requirements:
