    Hi guys. This is my first post and I apologise if it is in the wrong category but this thread seems most fitting.

    I was wondering if anyone has any info on Weddington Castle/Hall that isn't on its website

    Weddington Castle - Home.


    I am really interested in seeing some blueprints of the castle overlayed onto a current map.
    I know the castle it's self no longer exists but I have heard many rumors of a tunnel system that was blocked off years ago. I would like to see these and take some great photographs for anyone interested in Weddingtons history.
    Any information given will be a great help.
    Thanks

    Hi Buddha and welcome to the forum, the best place for your enquiry is here in leads and rumours. Hopefully you may get some info on your tunnels. :)

    Thankyou for your reply. I look forward to seeing some responses to this as it would mean a lot to me to be able to find these tunnels.

    There have long been rumours of a set of tunnels between the Castle, the Church and the Grove (formerly Fox & Crane pub, the building is now being turned into flats).

    Suspect tunnels may not have survived building on the Castle land when housing estate was built there in 1930s, but there are a couple of interesting leads I've seen... In 1996, when Fox & Crane closed for last time, I managed to get into the cellar and took a picture of a bricked up tunnel entrance I'd heard of . Presume this is still down there somewhere in the current building development...also over the back of the Grove (actually in the back garden of a house in Winchester avenue) is what appears to be an overground tunnel entrance; there were rumours this was for a tunnel that led all the way to Caldecote . If you pm me I'll send you the pics

    Good luck - I'd love to hear what you turn up!
