Napoleonic Listening Post Lower Lines info

Visit this link http://www.canterburytrust.co.uk/midken01.html to find info about the archaological survey done during the build of the new Mid-Kent College.  Unfortunately the napoleonic listening post has been covered up now but there are photos & info on the site, basically it was a domed space where a soldier would wait and listen for the sounds of the enemy digging towards them and possibly countermining them i.e. blowing them up – grruesome job.  It was also part of the trench warfare training grounds for Royal Engineers.
