A taste of how the other half lived in the Blitz


www.independent.co.uk

There was a secret lift behind an unmarked door near 33 High Holborn, where the Daily Mirror used to have its head office. Even Fleet Street's finest did not know who used it, or where it led. In fact, it took selected officials to the safety of two secret tunnels, deep below London, with a total length of about half a mile. They were so far below ground that, as I walked along them yesterday, I could hear Tube trains rumbling along the Central Line way above. These tunnels, which became even more important in the Cold War than they were during the Blitz, stayed on the "secret list" until three years ago. Officially, they did not exist or, if they did exist, they were not located under High Holborn but somewhere else. In the archives, you might find a reference to "tunnels 2147". To those who were allowed to know, such as the 200 or so security-vetted staff employed in them, they were the Kingsway Tunnels – a deliberately misleading name, because Kingsway is hundreds of yards away.

I believe there are quiet a few "crazy conspiracy theorists" out there who might feel mighty vindicated at this news confirming underground bases to the media. In fact, it appears if you have enough money you can even rent it out for a nice movie shoot sometime! So this is the old stuff, we can only imagine what the latest & greatest might look like....

Yea I caught that on a documentary in the UK, was very interesting. Wish I had the money to rent it, have a go at making a Large Hadron Collier out of an old DVD player and a microwave then I can scare everyone about black holes. hehe only black holes are in the shares markets.

Hard to imagine what new bunkers would look like, bet they got everything in there (Yea including what you just thought
)
