    Default Severalls Tunnels Google Map


    I've been into Severalls now so am happy to share this with the community.



    I made a Google Maps with Severalls Tunnel overlay which you can toggle on and off. Works on mobile devices too. Pretty simple little page.

    http://garyrowe.co.uk/stuff/severalls/

    Found the tunnels whilst there but completely lost my desire to explore them, even with a full chemical suit and mask.

    So if this helps anyone out, enjoy!

    Thats really impressive. I never realised they were as big and intricate as that. Kinda makes you wonder if many of the other buildings could have been accessed via these - or is that how people did it? Ie the chapel?
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    I went with a group in early '97 and they were complaining that the tunnel to the chapel had been recently concreted over....

    Some of those passages are really tight too... They're not all the walk through type!

    Yes there was a time 8+ years ago before everywhere got trashed when the service tunnels were the primary access to get into asylums.

    This knowledge was largely forgotten when other means of access became easier, as the tunnels aren't really places you would choose to be... Flooded asbestos, dust and shit infested places that they are.

    Yeah tunnels were the only way into West Park for years.

    Make the most of them as they will be filled in when building starts. Fairmiles were though I think a couple of cellars survive.

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
