    History

    This chalk mine served as an air raid shelter during the Second World War (as can be seen with some the remaining artifacts). It's built into a hillside on the North side of the city centre and has been around since at least the 1700's. There are two mines in the area, Rosary Road A and Rosary Road B.

    I was up in Norwich for around 16 hours and wanted to see a few bits, around a week or so before i went, there was a piss poor report on this place and having never seen it before and hardly seeing in that report also, i thought id swing by and see if i could do a better job of it. Myself and Norfolkexplorer checked a few other sites during the day but he had to dash off till a little bit later. I decided to pop over and have a gander but being before 5pm there was still workers on the site infront of where i needed to get too of which i needed to cross as well, so i headed off for a bit, had a quick couple of pints and waited till it got dark and the builders had left and returned and in i went...

    Enjoy
