Description:The access tunnel to Samphire Hoe near Dover

This tunnel was dug to allow access to Shakespeare Cliff for the abortive consruction of the 1970s Channel Tunnel, and it was used again to access the working site for the present Channel Tunnel at the base of Shakespeare Cliff. The spoil dug from the tunnel was used to create a new tract of land about 0.5km deep and 1.5km long; it has been designated a nature reserve and is open to the public for leisure such as walking or fishing The area is accessed through this same single-track tunnel.
