    I'm never popular with pointing out things like this, but if one of the moderators on this site gave an outside party permission to use my photos, I wouldn't be pleased.

    Rant over.

    Good point PhilG I hadn't considered that. I was under the impression that the photos belonged to the group moderators.

    If anyone gets in contact with me about these photos i'll take them down but until then i've done all I can to make sure they are credited and used with permission.

    Not sure what you're saying.
    Are you saying that (for example) my photos on this site belong to this group's moderators?
    Why moderators?
    Kev owns this site and not even he can give permission for photos posted here to be posted somewhere else.

    Of course, the original photographer can only get in touch with you if he finds out.

    Edit.
    I'm not getting at you, but yet again my post has been read while I'm typing it.
    Don't know how that happens! LOL.

    As with the previous message, I have full permission to post these pictures.

    These are of the previously long lost Triple Deck tunnel (I believed Cad knows more about this than me). The tunnel is not open to the public yet but progress is being made as you can see.

    The Triple Decker Tunnel runs from the back of Williamson's House and is bysected by the railway cutting but continues underneath the stable yard and along to a T-junction to underneath the Heritage Centre.

    A few years ago, we were able to dig down to gain access to the triple decker tunnel. Rumoured to be completely lost years ago, we found access and crawled along the top layer of this - probabably 200ft until it came to a T - junction, turned right and headed towards Smithdown Lane.

    There is some more info on this tunnel at my website:

    http://www.smithdownlane.com/#/thetunnels/4527719289

    I was aware that the Heritage Centre was digging back from the Corner Tunnel but did not realise that they had broken back in to the Triple Decker Tunnel - I don't recognise these pictures from the 1st visit so they have done very well to get back in to it!

    I was not impressed. The extent of the tunnels is vast. They didn't even state the size of them and the estimate of how much was actually dug out.

    They even had carpenters shops down there - not mentioned.

    There has never been a carpenters shop at any part of the Tunnel network. Where did you hear this?

    at least it was some publicity. people will often go online and look up info after seeing a piece on a programme.
