    There's always a tunnel between the church, the manor and the pub, even if there was no reason, and suitable roads.

    Of course, how else would the nuns/monks/smugglers/cavaliers/roundheads/servants/lords/ladies/priests get from one place to another without a secret passage.

    Just thought I'd blow the dust off this thread and post a quick update for anyone who might be interested or stumbles upon it...

    A national lottery fund heritage award was granted to Newark council allowing them to carry out a much more thorough ground penetrating radar survey. This is being carried out now (September - October 2017) and the results are not in yet but the good news is, the local urbex and paranormal communities are getting much more access to the many, many cellars that have bricked up entrances to the tunnels, and some of them are letting us knock the bricks down!

    There are too many stories and too much evidence to simply dismiss the idea of there being tunnels under Newark, whether or not they've caved in is a different matter. Either way, I'm hoping this survey proves that there are or at least were tunnels :-)
