    HISTORY
    Mansfield Road is a 1,189 yard bore, extending north from the site of the former Nottingham Victoria Station. The northern approach cutting, which was home to Carrington Station, has been infilled but this portal, now protected by a concrete wall, does have a hatch to the outside world.
    Although the roof has a brick arch throughout, the walls of the central section show Nottingham's sandstone with refuges being cut into the exposed rock. Some of these are 4-5 feet deep with seating ledges provided.
    Logan & Hemingway was the contractor responsible for its construction. Though completed in 1896, the line through the tunnel was not opened until July 1898. Closure came, amidst much controversy, in 1968.
