After London I caught the train up to the city of Liverpool to see family.
While there I did a bit of site seeing with them

Williamson's Tunnels
was a remarkable thing to see. A philanthropist, Williamson didn't believe in just giving money away, men had to work for it. So what better other than to build a whole lot of tunnels around his area of the city to nowhere in particular. An usual story of these tunnels some only rediscovered very recently that network under an area of Liverpool.
They weren't just small tunnels but very large, sometimes three on top of each other with wonderful brick work. Here is the exit to one such tunnel.

Also went on to see the Atlantic War command in an underground complex in the centre of Liverpool. Here the battle was planned with hundreds working here at one time. A very interesting visit.
