I'm a reporter on the Echo. Been reading Chris Kay's stuff about the recently uncovered Tranmere Tunnels ventilation shaft on the History page with interest. Get in contact Chris! If you would let me use the pic of the shaft and give me some details would look to do a story on it - with the calls for it to be opened as an attraction by the council. kevnews@live.co.uk
I did something on it for Wirral News a few years back, with a timeline of construction/its use as a ministry of agriculture food store after the war and stuff like that - an interview with one of the lads who got stuck down there and the firemen that rescued him etc. It's full of crumbling asbestos too so don't go breaking in!!!

I read this at the time! To be honest was thinking of doing something on that too but thought might get some of you chaps in trouble! Certainly seems a waste to have these structures just rotting - they've done loads with their tunnels in Exeter. Think because construction was going on on Holborn Hill it gives us a good excuse to do something.
You're a braver man than me going under Bidston...

Thanks, Paul; it was a statement, not a question. (I know where the question mark key is). wink

Unlikely to get us in trouble with the Birkenhead Tunnels
as apparently the police have watched them so a councilor
informed me and chris and came to the conclusion that we
were there in a positive way and not destructive.

I believe we have the most accurate map of Bidston Tunnels
measured and mapped, videos and pictures smile

If it gets some attention all the better for them and us smile

Well that's my opinon anyway.

If the council used their heads they may benefit from opening these tunnels and doing tours sleep
