    hi folks, on my last visit to new brighton I noticed the Mother Redcaps nursing home has been closed. After finding out its been closed for a few years, I was wondering if anyone has thought of checking the place out?. Now bearing in mind this is a very large building with lots of history, it also has been said it still has the smugglers caves underneath. if its been done is there any pictures? I'd love to see inside.

    I think that the tunnels were more of a myth than anything from the old smuggling days of it being an inn that warned of the presence of customs offices by placing a red lamp in the window, I remember as a lad playing on the derelict site and looking for the stars that were supposed to be engraved into the walls somewhere that lead to mothers redcaps treasure. Never found it or any of the stars lol.
    I think that the tunnels are actually the wormholes in the red or white noses further along the promenade.
    I dont know if the nursing home is still unused.

    Yeah those are the tunnels I was thinking of, a documentary is being made on mother redcaps and smuggling which is why I may find myself getting access!
