sai wan tunnel [????- ]

sai wan fort tunnel [c.1943- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1943-01-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

one of two tunnel systems I found skirting round Sai Wan Fort. This one has two entrances, one overlooking what was the bay of Sai Wan. Fairly extensive. The main entrance is easy to find (once you get there): on the road up to the fort,  head north around the hill from where there is some construction next to a resting area. There is a few minutes of bush whacking but there is a path created by workers who've been making the hillside safer.

Japanese tunnels between Deepwater & Repulse Bays [????- ]

Craig spotted this one on the 1945 photo shown below:

If you zoom toward the lefthand side of the photo, to where to roads bend out of sight towards deepwater bay, you should be able to see 3 massive Japanese Tunnel entrances.

I always suspected they were there as you can make out a very square looking bricked up section, but it has mostly been sprayed with concrete so its difficult to notice now.  You can also see where they tipped all of the dug out rocks and earth down the side of the hill.

Japanese tunnels near top of Mount Parker [????- ]

Thanks to Craig for showing me these yesterday. There are three tunnels close to each other. The two outer tunnels are the usual shape and size for people, and the middle tunnel is larger. None of them go back more than a few feet into the hillside, as though they started digging then decided against it.

The map marker's location is approximate, but if you follow the concrete path around the 'giant golf ball', you can see these just a few feet away from the railings, down the slope.
