Alland Grange Chalk Mine

Access to this mine was only possible after getting permission directly from the farmer. Alland Grange chalk mine is located in Thanet. It was possibly used to supply chalk locally for brick making. Later on it could well have been used for growing mushrooms or for storage. During the second world war it is almost certain that people would have used these mines for shelter. Manston airfield is so close to these mines that aerial bombardment was inevitable.
