Britain’s millions of kilometres of hidden underground tunnels remain a mystery of London tunnels
New data released by the Land Registry Office in 2017 revealed 4 million kilometres of underground data tunnels in London, many of which were secretly built by the British Post Office and the Department of Defense.
The mysterious Cold War tunnels and hundreds of huge underground locations have been interesting places for decades. Until recently, however, authorities had silenced most of the tunnels in the Department of Defense, and many had never admitted their existence.
The most shocking explanation is that hidden tunnels were found under the Postmaster General’s headquarters 57 White Hall. It is designed to protect government machinery and information systems in the event of an atomic bomb threat, and also houses a secure office once used by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
Raphael Hotels Company purchased 45,000 square meters of land from the Ministry of Defense in 2014 for 350 million dollars in accordance with English law. The old building has national heritage so it can be changed within legal limits. Known as the OWO or Old War Office, the building now opens in 2022 as one of London’s iconic landmarks, the world’s best and most luxurious hotel.
More than 30 tunnels have been built for underground tunnels from London’s low-income East End to Whitehall, and more than a dozen elevators are hidden tunnels leading to the Postmaster General’s tunnels. They connect to the K network in a possible way. It is quietly removed from the government building or telephone exchange.
The church room in the old war bureau is now open to the public.
Away from Whitehall, under Holburn High Street, the atomic bomb replacement was built in the 1940s to prevent air blasts. It was the headquarters of more than 200 engineers from 1960 to 1980.
In these two tunnel-filled underground bunkers, four more tunnels were widened in one corner to create the first transatlantic telephone cable terminal to offer ample space for staff, restaurants, game rooms and bars. The bar is said to be the deepest bar in British territory, 60 meters below street level, near the Chancery Lane metro station.
These deep tunnels are currently not accessible to the public. Near the White, Hall is underground security that was opened to the public and opened to the public in 1984. There was a ‘war room’ in an unknown cabinet. So far there has been a six-kilometre hike from the Churchill Room to the Bethany Green area, where traffic starts in the middle of the road.
Guy Sherbasol, who mapped the land registry data, found the tunnel on his blog and published his famous book of the same name, met with some experts in his research in the Holburn Tunnel.
“There was still time in terms of structures in the seventies,” Sherbasol says, in many ways it looks like an underground space centre with tunnels, now full of dirty machinery and equipment used for communication during the Cold War.
He said Sherbasol had only partial access to the tunnel system. But there is a huge network of tunnels
But when we got out, there were still electricity and lighting systems that showed it was a little well-maintained, water leaking in some places and dust everywhere, but deep tunnels were still used otherwise. He won’t choose the wall at the entrance
The former War Office (OWO) changes its name to Raphael Hotel, now known as OWO.
Mark Owen, author of Underground Cities: Mapping the Tunnels, Transits and Networks Under Our Hour, published in September of the same year, wrote: The world beneath London’s streets and districts The most complex are the secret networks of different tunnel types that have been well used in the past.
Mark Owen said there was a reason London was the busiest and most modern city in the world during the Industrial Revolution. There is a need to use the underground space better than any city in the world.
The city was so big that it was impossible to demolish the middle of the building, so they started building the city under it.
The United Kingdom world map is very detailed. Ordnance Survey, a UK mapping company, maps the area in detail and measures it to an inch. But geology is still an incomprehensible mystery.
The company is developing a detailed map of an underground network for the first time.
The Iceberg Project is a joint project of the Connected Places Catapult, the British Geological Survey and Ordnance Survey to map the London underground. It also includes tunnel data, geographic records, and maps of various geological applications. This includes water, sewerage, gas pipelines and 1.5 million kilometres of electricity cabling services.
According to Stephanie Brecker, Urban Geosciences team leader for the British Geological Survey, the city does not have a central database for geological data.
They’re in different places, he said.
The early stages of the British Geological Survey focused on gas, electricity, pipelines and more. It also did not capture the cultural and historical aspects of underground utilities.
Nottingham and Edinburgh have a history of underground operations. We don’t want to create maps, we want to understand the social interactions of people using these underground roads.
Now it tends to reveal secrets like never before, only in the UK But, but in many parts of the world, and this trend is not the only metaphor. But it’s also the truth that lurks from us. Yes we are looking for them
Anna Paul Smith, the founder of NGO Center for Public Data, said: “Once upon a time these were truly national security secrets. They went unnoticed and no government had made a map because they had never felt it. Should be done
It was also said that the Westminster subway station was built after the government rejected several routes. This may be because there is a network of underground tunnels that are used as a means of communication between government areas that later prove to be correct.
In a city under scrutiny like London, there is an underground facility where secrets are buried.
The moment you step on any of the London sidewalks, you step into hundreds of miles of tunnels, sidewalks and secret places that no one has heard of, Owen said.
For example, it is said that an underground tunnel was built to monitor the subway network and could be used to escape in the event of an accident, as in airline rumours. The network contains tunnels designed for royals to escape when Buckingham Palace is attacked.
Are these rumours true or not? Owen said that someday these things would show up. But for now, it’s a secret hidden in London’s busy streets.
