    Longbridge Tunnels
    Visited during an interesting nights exploring in Brum with @Lenston

    Here's some history shamelessly lifted from from his excellent report:

    Here's the iconic shot of ladies building the engines during the war

    And on with some shonky pics.

    I thought the entrance had been built over but I'm happy to be wrong

    One of the entrances has large scale building works adjacent to it. Won't be long before it's sealed for sure.
    The other, again on a building site but not as advanced, might last a little longer.
