Please could you share with me any information or maps you hold about the existence of tunnels or Roman sewers underneath or within 100 metres of Cliffords Tower, York.

Dear Ms Faughey,

 

Re: Information Request - Underground Tunnels in York

 

Thank you for your email on 20 August, in which you requested any maps or
information held about the existence of tunnels or Roman Sewers underneath
or within 100 metres of Clifford's Tower in York as well as any that may
exist beneath 37 Tanner Row.

 

You address your request to the English Heritage Trust. Please be aware
that on 1 April 2015, English Heritage was split into two organisations:
Historic England is a government service championing England’s heritage
and giving expert, constructive advice in areas including listing and
planning. The English Heritage Trust is a charity caring for the National
Heritage Collection of more than 400 historic properties and their
collections.  The Information Rights team continues to handle information
requests for both organisations so in this case, while the information
requested is likely to be held by Historic England, please be assured that
we have searched all relevant resources.

 

Your request has been considered under the Environmental Information
Regulations (2004). Having looked into this for you in detail, I can
confirm that we do not hold any information that falls within the scope of
your request.

 

Having spoken to contacts at our York office, the best contact for
information on this matter is John Oxley, archaeologist at York City
Council. He can be contacted via: [1][email address]

 

I hope that the information I have been able to provide is useful to you.
Details of our review procedure are attached.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Jenny Pearson
