crank caverns where do they go

Recommended Posts

I thought not.

Because from what you said they are not tunnels but brick walls.

Sorry if I am I wrong but am I wrong?

What can be seen today are arched shape tunnels made from old bricks which have been bricked up several metres in with newer bricks . It’s obvious they went further but how far I don’t know . 

I genuinely can’t attach the photos from my phone , there is an attachment option which says ‘ no file selected ‘ when you click. Very annoying . If you can enlighten me how to put them on I will do .

Hi Cecil,you will have to join a photo sharing site first and upload your photos to it.

There's plenty but i use Flickr and there's another called Imgur ( i don't know about that one though)

Will take it from there to tell you how to post.

We’ve established after 15 years if debate that Crank definitely doesn’t go anywhere. There are undoubtedly in accessible areas but it is not linked to the Stork. The tunnels up there sound interesting, its a very old pub. I would always ask why people would go to the effort to hew out tunnels though. Why would you build one to the church when you can just walk across to it? I'm not trying to be a killjoy here but I think its good to think about these things. It could be that they are old drops from the road that have been bricked up and backfilled. Without going off topic I took a photo recently of the Smethurst Shaft which is behind the Holts Arms and capped off. Noted by a Coal Authority sign as ‘secure site’. Quite interesting. Anyway back to the Caverns!
