This could possibly be subsidence over the infilled remains of the wartime air-raid shelters.

I wonder if the air raid shelters were conversions of the underground toilets?

I seem to remember that when they were digging up City Square in the late 1950's/early 1960's, they discovered the remains of a Roman Road cutting its way across the square. Does anyone else remember this?
