Were blacksmiths employed in the catacombs around 1900? My grandfather was one and lived in Wrotham Road (P Brant)

Think the access points have now been secured due to H&S Legislation around possible flooding. Ive not been in but would love to have a look. (Stu)

The pool is under the interchange (old distillery) - you can enter from the canal and then climb into the catacombs. You can also get in through APTN ( atv company at the interchange and also through a door in the basement of Jime Hensons Creature Workshop. (gog)
