    Barnsdale tunnel is on the disused Hull and Barnsley Line and is 1,226 yards long with 3 air shafts all capped.The western portal starts in Upton and eastern portal is found adjacent to the northbound service area on the A1 at Barnsdale Bar.
    Opened on 20th July 1885, the line through the tunnel closed officially in April 1959, although there had been no regular traffic for several months prior to that. Until 1967, a set of bufferstops remained at the western entrance.
    The tunnel remains in a fair condition, has had some patch repairs and repointing.
    When walked from the western end to the eastern end just after about half way you find yourself in a strange mist,also nearer the eastern end is a spring called Sharons spring not sure of the history or how it got its name.

    You need to change the Title to Barnsdale Tunnel as well mate

    Well done on getting in, it"s not been easy here recently since NR decided West Yorkshire Tunnels should be "No Access" areas.

    Of all the Railway tunnels i"ve done this ones probably the most boring, with limited Calcite & Ochre deposits to make it more interesting photographically.

    Unfortunately your pics are pretty :turd TBH. It could be 50yds long rather than a near 1 mile long Tunnel? all funny angles and crops & the first 2 pics are basically identical. Hopefully you"ll try & hold the I-Phone or whatever level next time? & things can only improve ;)

    Good effort getting out and exploring something :thumb Have to disagree with the above as the photos may not be magazine quality, but they do show you got in and had a good time. As far as I'm aware 28DL is an exploring forum, not a photography or photo critique forum. @ACID- REFLUX at least he could be bothered to put a report up :p

    Look forward to the next report, getting out is the main thing, photos are what you can get or take, not everyone is David Bailey :D

    Lol @The Lone Ranger I have to agree. I was never great on photographs. And have also said it's the explore. But nice pics do help. It's allways nice to see beautiful shots. But getting in and seeing stuff should be the main thing. But I did get stick for crap pics on my earlier stuff (Heck still do lol). But you did get to see it and the teddy pic is interesting. Kinda curious why it's there. And would have liked a shot down tunnel. But first and second pic same. Not sure why lol. Hey in the end you will get there. At least you posted something. Some just sit around for ages then post a acsess please message lol. Have a like for at least getting out there. Pics not best but suppose you got in and that's what matters

    Nice to see this again :thumb
    After hearing it had new 'defences', I thought I wouldn't see it on the forums for a few years. So top job on getting in.
    Your pics aren't great, but neither are mine. You'll improve with practice and you'll learn new techniques like light painting.
    Bring on the next report :thumb

    Good effort this.
    visited myself a few years back, and heard it had been sealed since.

    don't worry about the photography side; you will improve with time and practice

    If thats directed my way ? I never realised anyone wanted me to post some new reports up :eek: going off the lack of comments from the high and mighty gang who view them :Not Worthy anyway

    I thought the idea these days was not to post stuff & concentrate on how many Flickr likes/wanks you could get off other like minded egotistical people :wanker

    Not that I've joined that Club ;)

    You don't need to be David Bailey to hold a camera or phone level or actually try to show it's a Tunnel that you're in . I'm well aware it's not a Photography Forum and I didn't comment on the quality of the pics just the composition ,which is easily addressed and would have made the report 100% better.

    Mmmm Flickr love me a good flick of the cli*. Lol anyhow grabbing me the good old popcorn for the fun and games lmfao. In the words of a cracking film " Can't we all just get along " lol. Oh and ya pics will get better. Didn't realise it was night cause the portal looks daylight. But inside would have been dark anyways so wouldn't have mattered much ethier way. Just a good torch bit of the old light painting etc but with a phone that is a lot harder possible but hard. Ethier way you deffo will get there

    20 reports, but 2377 comments! Possibly time to get out and put another report up. At least Wappy managed that and sure his next report will be a lot better with all the helpful advice he has received :thumb
