Orreet!

When i was a lad growing up in Rochdale (I know, I know) we used to hear stories of a secret tunnel from Stubley Old Hall to Birch Hill Hospital. I have searched the tinterweb but found nothing. Has anyone else heard of this?

Ta like!

If they've never been reported and you can't find anything online I'd say they were part of the same network of tunnels every kid heard of in their town. You know....the real super secret ones. ;)

I actually found some info on the tunnel last night, it was actually between Stubley old hall and Clegg Hall not Birch Hill like we were told as kids.

I also heard alot about these tunnels growing up but the location I heard was from falinge Park Manor to falinge Park High school and then all the way across the the town hall which is about 3/4 mile long from one. I knew a few people who went to this school and they said they was able to go down it for like 5 metres down but then it was bricked up from that point, since then you cannot go down it at all there has been put a metal door on the entrance apparently. There is apparently one entrance in the basement of the town hall which will be difficult to get to that entrance from there and one surrounding the Manor House so I have heard.

There’s a guy in Littleborough that got into some tunnels recently (last 12 months) that linked different parts of the hospital. Still in good condition even though there is a new shoebox housing estate built on the site. He posted pics on his Facebook page but can’t remember his name but he’s well known for his exploring in the area

I grew up on the council estate next too birch hill, we used to play in the tunnels when we could get in. They were extensive (everything seems huge as a kid though) connecting alot of the older buildings mainly at the top of the site. Many of the entrances we used are gone too make way for the shoebox estate mentioned above. One entrance i know of still remains but its always been locked on the few occasions ive checked. From what i remember there were a lot of pipes and cables in the tunnels. A few rooms filled with junk/old fire extinguishers etc, but it has been 20 odd years since my last visit

there are tunnels as they used them to transport the bodies straight from the hospitals directly to the chapel, you will see them on here no doubt... but yes they did exist before the housing company took over..
