Knights Templar of Hertford still meet in underground chambers connected by a secret network of tunnels. Two brothers described their existence in an exclusive interview for the local newspaper: ‘a largely unknown, indeed mostly secret, ancient underground network that stretches beneath the town’s main streets’. This second edition contains more research to uncover the real secret of Hertford’s tunnels.
This interview was published on 8th October 2004 in the Hertfordshire Mercury. Hertford became the centre of media attention. Reporters and film crews from around the world descended on the small county town to film and comment on this network of underground tunnels. They were disappointed. They were met by rebuffs from town officials, historians and community groups and the tunnels were never photographed or indeed explored.
The evidence for and against the existence of the Hertford tunnels is set in this book and the history of Knights Templar and modern day Freemasons in Hertford. It contains a short history of the town from the days when it was a Norman stronghold; and doubles as a tourist guide for anyone wanting to spend a day amongst its historic pubs, modern bars and restaurants.
This second and revised version includes new research material, extra photos and two completely new chapters. One covers the persecution and eradication of the Knights Templar in Great Britain. The other offers a final solution as to the origin, the building and the reason for the disappearance of the tunnel network.
