Between 1818 and 1838 a man called Joseph Williamson employed men to build tunnels in Edge Hill. He did this so that he could give them money to buy food for their families. He was a very kind, but rather strange man (eccentric) and was called The King of Edge Hill by the men who worked for him.

You can come and see his tunnels and hear stories about Joseph Williamson, his workers and his tunnels. He was also known as The Mole of Edge Hill and because of this everyone at Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre is delighted to find that all sorts of moles have made their home in our tunnels. Hand-made by volunteers, there are various scenes throughout the tunnels showing moles at work, rest and play.

Why not come and see them for yourselves as part of a 40 minute guided tour of some of Williamson’s Tunnels.
