As a child in the 40s I used to crawl through the tunnel with the entrance down the chimney like building that was situated where the second green on the golf course. To get to the tunnel I had to climb down the iron ring ladder and walked eastward, In some parts I had to crawl through a narrow part. I only had very dimly little torch so it was a bit scary.
