  1. Something I've just remembered since I signed up here... Just off the M1 J35a there's a road called Warren Lane, at the end of which there's a little brick hut with far too much security on the windows. The only time I've walked past it was in shadow & it was before ubiquitous phone torches, I couldn't see a floor in there, but I could hardly see the back wall. There is a train line running under that hill, but the hut's a good 2-300m off from the line, so if it's an air shaft, or any shaft to the kind of rooms that got built by the diggers then they really went out of their way to go off away from the tunnel. I know a few people in the area, & no-one has any idea what is is, though everyone seems to know which little hut I mean. They all just assume it's something to do with the tunnel. There are two air vents nearby, one just off the northbound M1 sliproad, one in woods nearby, & they're both heavily fortified, & different brickwork to the hut, which unless I'm mistaken is later. Looks like there's a small sign on the front in the Google Streetview shot I've noticed now too, that wasn't there when I passed it, torture! Incidentally it sits within a couple of hundred metres of two industrial estates, one of which was where they made Churchill Tanks during WW2 (& the other was the old Izal factory), & the brickwork & flat concrete roof does have a hint of the late 30/early 40s about it. If anyone's passing (you can only get off going north at J35a) it may be worth shining a torch in, if it's a shaft then it may point to there being side chambers leading off the train tunnel?
