Now this post may seem a little strange at first, but bare with me. This story dates back to when 1326 when a Church was built near where I live. From
this point until now I have no idea when the next part of this tale happened but tunnels were built for the people in the church to escape
It’s well known that there are MANY tunnels under Liverpool, by many I mean HUNDREDS possibly thousands. They were dug by a man named Joseph
Williamson, gaining the name The Williamson Tunnels. Here is a site with a few videos showing these tunnels:
Now I said Williamson dug these tunnels, which is partly true, dug them but he paid jobless men to also dig the tunnels. The story what I’ve heard
is he paid them for the sole reason they didn’t have a job. So the tunnels near/under the city center were dug just so these men could be paid. What
was Williamson doing? Was he mad? Who knows.
Me and my friends used to walk through the old Train tunnels when we had nothing to do and see what was up in there. These are the tunnels:
I swear I've fell over that bicycle lol. In the 2nd tunnel there is an opening leading toward the church. Obviously the train tunnels were built after
the church tunnels so why the need for an opening toward the church. When we walked into this little "cavern" type place it was narrow and slightly
more warmer than the other tunnels. One time we heard "wailing" and ran like the clappers out of there, slowly, creeping over rocks.
Back to the Church, there are supposedly three or four tunnels underground which lead away from the church so the people inside could escape, as I
said. One tunnel apparently goes all the way underground toward the city center area. The others all lead off in different directions. One was boarded
up, cemented and then bricked up in an old train tunnel that me and a few friends used to walk down.
But what I want to discuss is the last tunnel, which leads under my house and then nobody knows where. The church is North from my house, the tunnel
itself comes from North West and leads off South East. I don’t know how deep it is underneath but it’s not THAT far underground. Most of the
houses in my street have a basement. My house doesn’t.
My mum told me something which made me post this long ass thread. She said, the cable had gone off so she switched the TV off and read her book, as
she read it she said You know when your concentrating then something catches your attention? It was like chanting or humming really loud, but it was
I asked many people about this church and a few seemed to know about the tunnels mainly older people. I’m going to look into it further and see if I
can dig up anything about where the tunnels lead to, mainly the one under my house. The other tunnels are supposed to run directly underneath the
Heres a few cool stuff and some pictures to help you visualize the place.The church itself dates back to 1326!! Here is a list of it’s history if
you want to look through it, it’s quite fascinating.
Here is the church location on Google.
