Kingsway Tunnels - 110 feet down
Kingsway Telephone Exchange, like a subterranean town.
Location: Chancery Lane & Kingsway..., WC1V
Description: Kingsway Telephone Exchange, began life as a deep-level tube shelter, then a war bunker and now...well it is so large that is is more like a subterranean town with tunnels given names such as Third Avenue, Bypass Alley and The Dog's Leg. Linked to older Post Office tunnels and at Craig's Court, this labyrinth runs for 12 miles from Bethanal Green to Shepherd's Bush and from Euston to Waterloo.
