Sooooo I found a door way to a tunnel in Blackpool it’s been confirmed by workmen to deffo be a tunnel but has apparently got lots of rubbish in it this area was only dug out this week to begin foundations for a new build they filled it back in over the door way until I asked a worker about it who was as interested as me ... so it’s clear again for now

Well, get in there whilst it's open. And do it quickly, since time probably isn't on your side in this situation. That's the only advice I have.
You could either try asking permission to go in (especially since you say they're interested in it themselves) or you go in when nobody is there.

Couldn’t get close enough for photos

I live in sunny (some times sunny) Blackpool also, I have seen some gems uncovered with the work being done lately

Anyone else not notice the underground toilets on talbot square being uncovered/filled in?

I could do a report with photos and info I’ve got if anyone would want to read?

Photo attached is a sample

Unfortunately what the OP thought were tunnels beneath the old Yates site were just part of the cellars from before the buidling was destroyed by fire some years ago. Debate still rages on though regarding the existence (or not) of tunnels beneath the Winter Gardens that connect to various other points in town, same with the Town Hall and the old Post Office too.
Apparently there were various "facilities" and spaces created and used during WW2 for various reasons around town, some were put to other uses after the war, others were just boarded up/buried/sealed off and forgotten about according to some of the older folks who remember these things. If nayone has any more info though I'd be very interested

I remember that subway when it was in use and those stinking toilets too, I could never understand why the subway was blocked off as it provided a nice safe crossing of the prom for pedestrians who have to run the gauntlet at times now
