Fenland Archaeological Society’s pre-Christmas talks about the tunnels that run underneath Wisbech were very popular and oversubscribed.

As a result the group has decided to organise a third event which will take place on Wednesday January 17 at Mendi’s restaurant starting at 7.30pm.

Rumours about the tunnels under Wisbech have circulated for centuries.

Andy Ketley has researched the subject extensively and has uncovered some strange stories as well as an intriguing explanation as to why Wisbech started to expand in the late Middle Ages.

There is also a twist in the tail that has surprised many.
