East Surrey Underground
Concentrated into a small area of South East England in East Surrey, there exists a great variety of underground features. Some are natural, but most are man-made. There are mines for building stone like firestone and hearthstone as well as sand, fullers earth and chalk. Wartime tunnels, cellars, and underground follies add to the variety. The swallow holes of the River Mole are also covered.
