About this image
The tunnels at Harpur Hill were first made in 1938 by the Air Ministry to store bombs during World War ii. They were purchased in 1964 to be converted to use as a mushroom farm by Wrington Vale Nurseries. There are 11 tunnels. Mushrooms were sent out all over the country, mainly by rail.
