    explored with Peach.

    First new location of the new year!
    The day's plan was to hunt down some more mines in Northamptonshire but even after hours of research it didn't look like we was going to find anything. So not letting that get us down we decided to head over to Catesby tunnel.
    Saying this place is huge is the understatement of the year!
    Its 27 feet wide by 25 feet 6 inches high and an outstanding 2,997-yards long. It was cut by T Oliver & Son of Horsham and the only reason for it's existence is due entirely to the owner of the Catesby Estate who did not want unsightly trains blotting his landscape.

    Catesby Tunnel retired from operational service on 3rd September 1966.
