Good exhibit. At the top of a steep hill and further fairly steep inclines and steps inside so not the easiest place to push a sleeping toddler in a buggy. Unfortunately it became cloudy before we reached the tunnels but I imagine there is often...More

Excavated by British Army engineers during the Great Harassment between 1779-1783, they were made on the rock with very simple tools and gunpowder. These tunnels are part of a defense system and impressive to visit them.
