hi not posted before hope im where i should be...anyway was talking with my bloke the other day about caves tunnels etc he was telling me about the wormhole caves and the bidston tunnels he has been down both of them....anyway it turns out he fancys himself as a self styled cave guru haha...no(seriously)he tells me that he believes there is a cave under victoria gardens new brighton on the site of the new flats....he takes me down there and showed me the fenced off building site he then pointed to an old 'hut'which one side was made up of the original red brick wall that used to run along virginia road and said that he thought there was a cave underneath this single storey building.strangely it was smothered with scaffolding (this was 2 days ago)since then the scaffold has been taken down but he is adamant that there is some kind of cave under there....must admit it is a bit strange the way that section of wall has been preserved and at the time of writing still exists....does anybody know anything of this?

Almost exactly half-way between Balmoral Road and Victoria Parade?

I vaguely remember visiting what must have been the Wormhole with a group, I think it might have been the youth club. The entrance was in someone's back garden.

That's in the back garden of a house in Wellington Road, overlooking the Red Noses.

I guess there is a chance that it is another entrance to the Palace Amusement tunnels, it would be beyond belief that tunnels that size would only have one entrance, but I didn't think they headed in that direction.

But it may simply be something to do with utilities, if it had just been another isolated tunnel it would have been capped instead of rehashing the building that was over the length of that wall.

Think the foundations for the new flats at the bottom of Victoria Road took some sorting, I heard they pumped many tonnes of concrete in which kept dissapearing, putting the project back and the costs up.

Maybe they have been filled in for good?

There were buildings where the flats are getting built (the infamous Ham & Eggs Parade) but they were built on reclaimed land and they probably didn't have the ten year settling time for the land like we do these days. They were demolished around 1907.

do you mean THIS red-bricked structure??? i'm sure there's not much in there, the mini golf course used to be up there and if i remember rightly the kiosk where you paid and got clubs was in them, i THINK they're not much more than storage and the like rather than entrances to some caves...
