    I heard something the other day about a tunnel from Speke Hall or somewhere that can fit a small plane inside!! Is it true?

    Havn't heard that a plane can fit inside, but I was told that there was a tunnel, or tunnels leading from Speke Hall down to the river. Something to do with secret escape routes for the Catholic priests.
    I've heard that there are lots of underground tunnels in Liverpool. Probably some we don't even know about. Are there some under the Town Hall & Exchange Sq. ??

    Visitors have been given the rare chance to get the inside track on the Mersey Tunnels on Sunday 21st August 2006.

    Free guided tours gave the opportunity to see newly constructed escape refuges, the engineering control room and one of six ventilation stations.

    Merseytravel chair Councillor Mark Dowd, said: "They are a fantastic feat of engineering and these tours allow people into the tunnel's heart."

    The visitors were seeing the Queensway Tunnel in action.

    The open day is part of the build up to Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture in 2008.

    Neil Scales, chief executive of Merseytravel, said: "We are planning to launch tunnel tours on a much bigger scale later this year."

    I remember walking through the Kingsway tunnel when it was first opened, did anyone else?
    My grandfather also walked through the Queensway Tunnel.

    Its one of those events that you tell people and they don't believe you, that you walked the tunnel.

    Default tunnels

    I once heard there used to be a tunnel leading from Garston docks to the Garston Hotel (now demolished). I was told it lead to a celler that was used for the sailors to drink in rather than use the main lounges.

    Dont know how true this is does anyone else know of this.
