Does anyone know anything about this tunnel? It was discovered while laying drains through the village.

The pictures below were taken in June 1961:

Looks like it could be an old sewer leading away from the old house?

Thats a really old house and was used for an inn with extending grounds. I would guess that its probably something to do with a cellar & stores
