photos by Michael Cook of the storm drains around Canada, really amazing photos (click on them for bigger/more impressive size). I particularly like the one of the dude going down or coming up in the middle of suburbia and the idea that he could be entering the tunnel in the photo below...probably not though.Im getting closer to unearthing some information about where to enter the ones I've read about under London then its down under for Max, Jack and I.

The network of tunnels below London is an ongoing line of interest.There is this maze of dark passageways,disused tube stations,rooms,bunkers (apparently government ones with names like Icarus that lie deep below Westminster).There are rumours of entrances to these tunnel systems at the base of bodiceas statue which runs to Blackfriars then to the Bank of England and a disguised trap door next to the Half Price ticket store in Leicester Sq which goes down to an electricity sub-station.In the 1980s a journalist for The New Statesmen descended 100 feet from an access shaft on a traffic island in Bethnal Green to a government bunker with his folding bicycle that stretched all the way to Whitehall and then split to go to Waterloo(under the river), Fleet St, Leicester Sq and the Post Office Tower.
