Notability[edit]

I can confirm Nigel Pennick is sufficiently notable to have a Wikipedia article - for his astonishing self published output, the breadth of subjects, and his journey from secret government tunnel ferreter to mystic. His 'Tunnels / Bunkers Under London' was a unique and seminal work.

Authorship[edit]

Come now - I don't know how to tell, but this has all the hallmarks of being written by Nigel himself. We can't have people writing their own biographies, and then citing a minor printed source they also probably wrote.

Omitted works[edit]

Also curious is that 'Tunnels Under London'(1981) and 'Bunkers under London' (1982/1988) are omitted - does he now wish not to be associated with ferreting out very obscure public domain references to things one would otherwise assume are secret, of which he was once a pioneer?
