Underground England: Travels Beneath Our Cities and Country

by Stephen Smith - £15.00  Little, Brown Book Group (Abacus) (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780349120386 | ISBN 10: 0349120382

For Stephen Smith, author of Underground London, beneath the dales and downs of England’s green and pleasant land there exists another country, its equal in beauty and fascination.
 
On his underworld odyssey from Newcastle to Brighton, from the Welsh Marches to the Suffolk coast, Smith uncovers smugglers’ tunnels and drowned cities, burial mounds and underground waterfalls, and investigates the errant nuns and secret societies, the eighteenth-century rakes and troglodyte communities who have made the netherworld their home.
 
Erudite, curious and unfailingly entertaining, Underground England is at once subterranean ghost train, rollercoaster ride, and passport to a mysterious other world.
