    Default Underground Street - Lime Street

    I recently attended a paranomal investigation in an old victorian underground street beneath Lime Street. The company that I did this with was called Night Vision Investigations and they have got exclusive access to this hidden street as it's not open to the public.
    I was wondering if anyone has any information or pictures of what it once was. They paranormal team reckon it was old tenancys, part of the slums. Would anyone know if this is correct? The street has buildings either side of it which have bars on all of the windows. It is an amazing place, well worth a look even if you aren't into the paranormal!

    Hi Mart, here's some the company uploaded on to Flickr.

    There's what looks like a basement access corridor with windows and bars over them. I don't recognise the place though? Perhaps cupcake will tell us which building they visited?

    I'm surprised that 'the company', if they are doing genuine research and concerned to publish their findings, have not given details to go with each photo, or batch of photos - some clearly show Williamson's Tunnels rather than whatever is alleged to be beneath Lime Street. I have heard of cells to hold prisoners below St George's Hall, which of course housed the Crown Court at one end. Could this be what we're talking about here? Some of the other pics seem to show central heating pipes - perhaps these are part of the air-conditioning system, which I believe was the first in the country.

    Hi all

    In any case, it doesn't look like an underground street with shops etc like Slemen was talking about... they appear like underground rooms or cellar rooms.
