We decided to have a nose around the old kwik fit garage as it was empty and upon removing a drain cover, it dropped down about 10 foot in to what looked to be a narrow underground street/passageway. With the aid of a ladder (as you'll always find one on a Sunday afternoon in a pub...) we nipped down. It ran parallel to the road and had a number of bricked up sandstone lintle windows and 3 rectangle doorways blocked up. There were cobbles on the floor which suggested a part road but I think this was just a basement area for the houses above. Going towards Hardman Street was an arch blocked up that we couldn't get even a single brick out.

    Just wondered if anyone in authority,such as the council,museums,etc,know anything about these? I remember seeing the pic's on here,but has there been any further investigation?
