Signed by the author on the title page. “Secret passages or hidden tunnels are a widespread feature of popular belief and local stories about them are almost as ubiquitous as those related to ghosts. There are interesting stories attached to many of the hundreds of rumoured secret tunnels in England and this study has endeavoured to collect most of them in one place: here you will find, together with the amorous monarchs, concupiscent monks, vanishing fiddlers, thwarted treasure seekers, cunning smugglers, elusive Catholic priests and escaping Royalists of tradition, historical figures from Eleanor of Aquitaine to Henry VIII, Charles II and Winston Churchill and folklore monsters such as the Dragon of Ludham, Spring-heeled Jack and Sir John ‘Bloody’ Baker.
Secret Tunnels of England: Folklore and Fact is the first book on the subject for twenty-five years and is packed with new research, much of it from the 21st century. “ #65801
