    Depends which/what you are asking about

    Do you mean the drains? the sewers? the old shelters? the old undercrofts? the service tunnels? the old culverts? the mythical church tunnels? the conservative tunnel? or something else mate?

    Like every town and city there are multiple rumors, stories, legends, and some bits of truth.

    Have you read this article?

    If you are local then the best way is to go search - and talk to locals - be interesting to see what you can find :thumb

    the tunnels might be safer than the street as unfortunately the town is getting very run down end needs some life injecting into it

    There are some service tunnels that run underneath the bus station and towards the shops. I've never been down them but I met a spoke to a guy through work who worked for the bus company and had to go down them as part of his job. He sad they were pretty minging with a lot of rats. Think I'll stay surface side for that one lol

    About 10 years ago, a mate of mine used to run a bar in the town centre so I got to go down into the cellars - whilst most of the cellar was pretty 'regular' there was a door through to another small disused section - the best way I can describe it is that it was almost like a small alleyway however, there was an old door frame and old window fitted into the wall (all blocked) it was pretty weird.

    The 'alleyway' only ran for a short way and was sealed (probably going into other premises) Best I can guess it was an original street level from well before the current ones were built.

    I've been keeping my eye out for the tunnels and the closest thing I saw the other day was this -
    https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/t1DOIh3LYlq92XcJltpxYg

    Its at the bottom of the drapery near Circus and as the county hall is approximately 500 yards away (Guessing), I would guess that tunnels may exist between to two?
