Very similar to the parallel Northern Line tunnel in the Stockwell/Clapham area constructed during the 40's as, immediately, bomb shelters but with the forward thinking that they would ease congestion on the Tube when the war was over.

The forward thinking died somewhere along the line (sorry), the tunnel being sold for data storage and the congestion on the Northern Line steadily getting worse.

I did some work for an organisation connected with these tunnels etc and thats all I can say apart from the fact that there was more info when researched via google on these so called sensitive sites than the client actually held!

They were also the setting for James Herbert's book "Lair" set in Post holocaust Britain too, as for Subterennea Brittanica, did some survey work for them in the 90's on old ROC bunkers
