    Forgive me if this is common knowledge but i was talking to a guy in work today who said his Mrs worked at the shopping centre in Bolton.
    He said that it was built on top of some old tunnels that contained taverns etc, and that it would be impossible to get in due to security.
    The access i believe is in the corner of the loading bay as you go in and up some stone steps that obviously dont belong there.
    Anyone have any further info or if he is just winding me up it would be appreciated.
    Cheers.

    There is stuff under what used to be called the Market Hall, but is now I think part of the Market Place. This was storage for the traders who owned stalls, including my grandad, which is why I know. Since it's been refurbished, I'm not sure what the status of these is.

    Those older members of the board will remember the infamous Mr X. He did some research on underground Bolton and some exploration as well, but he got banned so I'm not sure if. There's any of his stuff still online.

    Was he that gimp that got kicked off the forum after it was discovered he decided to smash a lock and kick a door in to the roof of a hotel? If I remember rightly he made a post about this subject and he pretty much put this rumour to bed.
