    something they didn't cover, as far as i recall, is the tunnels running from the properties on St Mary street over to Mill Lane. When Mill One was the one of the canal ut was the main source of supplies for ST Mary street and there are still tunnels running from place like The Philharmonic and O'neill's through which they used to take the goods. A mate of mine was working on a site recently and said he had a snoop round the tunnels, some are blocked off but some are still accessible.
