Well this is my school and as someone related to me works here it is very handy, i already knew there was underground passages as Hemsworth as it you'st to be a statley home and i found out the passages leaded all the way to Nostell Priory, anyway it's obviously a permission visit and you will never be able to go here and i can't really see you wanting too! :lol: Anyway cant find history on the hall, in school the ledgend is the blue lady, she hung herself in the tunnels towards nostell because she had a affair with the gardener, the lord found out, killed the gardener so she hung herself then the lord found another with and lived happily ever after blah blah blah, sorry if i board you on with the pics..

Thanks for looking, the tunnel has been sealed for 200 years so we can't go to nostell ;)

Nice one. There's tunnels everywhere in Wakefield, i'm gonna have a sniff round for some info about them. Nostell to Hemsworth is a fair old space.
Im with National Trust, every so often they have upstairs downstairs tours of Nostell Priory, you go down into the depths of it.
