On 18th Feb at 7.30pm in the Bakehouse there’s a talk about what lies beneath Greenwich. Anthony Durham on Greenwich Underground – more interesting than on top. There’s not much more information to go on at the moment at the Greenwich Industrial History blog, but hopefully it will go into the many mysterious things beneath the heath.
Those amazing cavers at Subterranean Greenwich have found an old description of Blackheath Cavern, from the Morning Chronicle, on Tuesday 8th April 1817:
Blackheath Cavern – new 1817 description
Are there undiscovered chalk mines waiting to collapse on Blackheath Hill? Subterranean Greenwich seems to think so…
Winn’s Chalk Mine, Blackheath Hill
I think we need a remote control plane and some radar equipment…
Amazing photos of “The Blackheath Cavern” on the Subterranean Greenwich and Kent blog. Also known as Jack Cade’s Cavern, these are photos that I haven’t seen before! Well worth a look. Imagine the parties down there.
