9780750952248: Hidden Britain: Secret Tunnels, Lost Chambers and Unknown Passageways

The answer to the question: "I wonder where that leads?" 

The mystery and romance of secret chambers surpasses even the haunted house. Secret Chambers explores gloomy priest holes, secret passageways, concealed doors, and lost vaults in castles, manors, inns, and churches. This extraordinary book is a treasure chest of antiquities, gripping true stories, romantic legends, and little-known curiosities. There is tangible, exciting history here as well as intrigue, murder, and mystery in abundance. Thoroughly researched and with more than 200 entries, this beautifully illustrated and highly readable book takes readers on a guided tour of a long-neglected subject. History enthusiasts, incurable romantics, and the plain curious apply within.

Britain s history is rich in mystery and scandal, and our ancient buildings hide the fascinating stories. Hidden Britain takes you backstage at some of our country s most intriguing locations, into secret tunnels, down concealed passageways and behind the scenes at historic houses, castles and churches.
