Hi i was in the doctors not long ago and this old man was talking about a tunnel from the old grange farm which was located on the current site of grange farm medical centre, he said the tunnel was located in the scouts fenced off area and runs from there to wollaton hall and was used supposedly to deliver fresh goods to the hall, Anyone else heard of this? He said he went in it a few times when he was a scout leader in his younger days.

"The wine cellars below Wollaton Hall could also be looked on as an example of a tunnel, especially the small passageway at the end of the main wine cellar. This passageway, it is believed, ran down in the direction of Wollaton village, half way along the route it broke through to the surface. It could have been constructed to house a very early plate-way, the name given to the first type of railway because it ran on metal plates with a lip on the outside to stop it drifting off. This plate-way would have been used to haul goods up the hill from the village. "
