Product Description

By Jane Phillips

The Clarendon Boys have an explosive past!

Sam is an ordinary boy living in Dover. His grandfather was an ordinary boy too. But only if you ignore the trouble about the Second World War mine, the train, the crashed aeroplane and the long dark tunnels beneath the Western Heights with all their dangerous secrets …

Available from us and from these sellers: Amazon, at the Grand Shaft shop in Dover and bookshops up and down the country.

Also available as an Amazon Kindle ebook.

The Setting:
The Western Heights consist of a huge range of fortifications situated along the western (believe it or not) portion of land between the town and the cliffs. They include the Citadel, pillboxes and lookouts, the enormous moats of the Drop Redoubt and the Grand Shaft, amongst others. If you are visiting the area, perhaps you’d like to take a look. Visit the Western Heights Preservation Society website for information on open days and other events. The photograph above shows part of the vast moat and fortifications of the Drop Redoubt.
