Devil's Tunnel


Devil's Tunnel
Don't know its real name or if it has one but as kids we knew it as the Devil's Tunnel. It runs under the railway and connects Lower Ince and Westwood.

Anyone remember the playground rumours that surrounded the Devils Tunnel? Two that spring to mind are the Policeman who rode into the Devils Tunnel on his push bike at midnight but never made it to the other side people (presumably from the Kays Houses) found his bike on the floor the next morning in the middle pf the tunnel with the front wheel still slowly turning. Another one was the time someone managed to drive a Mini through the tunnel.
