    Did this backache culvert with King Mongoose. The portal has crumbed after years of neglect, but inside it structurally acceptable. Its full of spiders, and is a bit cramped, but quite long, with several twists and turns.

    The GNR & LNWR joint railway line ran from Nottingham (or Newark), via Melton Mowbray, and on to Market Harborough & Northampton, built around 1879. Passenger services were only around six per day in each direction, although it was more heavily used by goods traffic. Further on up the line, the main river passes under an impressive 14 arch red brick viaduct which still stands today. The line closed to regular passenger services in 1953, and finally to goods trains in 1964. This line was one of the pre Beeching cuts, and has been derelict for 50 years, so it has seen better days.
