Did you know that a network of tunnels can be found deep beneath Wisbech?
Historian Andy Ketley will explore the town’s subterranean architecture at the next Fenland Archaeology Society on November 22.
A society spokesman said: “Andy’s research has been carried out as part of the High Street Project and he has been researching the subject for over a year.
“Locals are aware of some subterranean architecture through subsidence like the one shown in the 1960s but the size and extent of the tunnels will come as a surprise to most.”
Andy will explain where the tunnels can be found and what they have been used for at the meeting which begins at 7.30pm.
