    visited with @ACID- REFLUX & @Coolboyslim ,
    thankyou both for the help, support & patience while doing this.

    The tunnel is 481 yds long consisting of 2 identical single tunnel bores parallel to on another,
    running from Hawthrorn road to Oak street runs beneath Marsh lane & the Liverpool canal.
    The east portal lies in a steep cutting with heavy vegetation resembling a jungle,
    theres no air shafts except a gap at the halfway point which carries a utility bridge
    theres refuges on one side & adit passages on another connecting both tunnel bores
    the west portal is buried beneath debris to street level.
    The tunnel is on the former Langton branch, built entirely of black colliery bricks.
    opened in 1885, closed on 1st january 1968.
    Theres water & iron ore dirt the full length of the tunnel, 2 ft at the east rising to 4 ft at the west.

    Nice stuff, looks more like a culvert than a railway tunnel in places
