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.

Underground England takes an extraordinary and original look at our island nation—from below. Stephen Smith quite literally delves into the unknown country underneath ploughed fields, cliff tops, and market towns. Underground England will explore rudimentary earth dwellings and hidden Cold War cities; sulfurous natural springs and manmade underground waterways; priest holes and subterranean nooks created with more sinister purposes in mind. The author visits the endless military tunnels built below Chatham since the Napoleonic Wars; and the secret labyrinth quarried out under Liverpool by a religious eccentric. He gets into tight spots with speleologists, and gamely ventures down haunted tunnels and into the mythical resting-places of English kings. A fascinating and eye-opening exploration of the world that lies beneath our feet.
