    Sounds like those smaller shops further up Church street - the ones just before

    you get to the Disney store. Can't think what they are off the top of my head - I think one of them is called 'Past Times' .. anyway, those buildings are

    old.

    I've heard many rumours of things like that in various towns. I suppose it's possible, although the

    railway line runs underneath there too...

    There is an underground 'street' under the old Kwik Fit garage on Renshaw

    Street which I've been in (doesn't go far but shows some bricked up arches/windows. There is a massive tunnel system, however, in the basement of JJB

    sports. It's almost temping to get a day job there just to explore!!

    I don't want to put a damper on this thread, but I don't think there are any buried streets in Liverpool.
    When JJB were in Lord Street they occupied part of what had been the Lord Street Arcade, but that was above ground, like the Wayfarer's Arcade in Southport.

    There are loads of buried streets in Liverpool - I've been in them!!

    The first one is under what is the Cellar of the Dispensary pub on Renshaw Street. The only access to it is via a drain in what used to be Kwik Fit's Garage next door. At one time, this corridor linked up most of Renshaw street looking at old plans!

    LOL - Snappel is our above ground guide!! Me and heights don't mix that well as I found out when standing on top of the 'Birds Nest' at the top of the Municipal Buildings (Council Offices) hanging on to the iron railing for life!

    I know lots around the City Centre underground but you'll have to ask the questions so I can give answers hehe.
