Sheffield General 60
These steps lead down to a vault underneath the gatehouse that was only re-discovered in 2003 during renovations, during the 1970's there was a fire and the vault was filled in and forgotten. the vault hadn't been lit when I visited on the opening day (16th of November 2003) so I couldn't get any photos below as it was pitch black (I will return sometime to try again)

It is thought that some bodies could have been stored down there before they were buried because of how cold it is in the vault and it was also a possible store for the grave diggers tools
