    King Mongoose and The Wombat bring you another tunnel!

    Our darkest and longest to date, at 1189 yards long exceeds our previous record holder, Haddon tunnel. Probably not best for tunnel beginners this one. Despite being under a busy city, it was surprisingly silent in there. The roof has a brick arch throughout, but the sides are sandstone rock. The northern approach cutting is infilled, and the portal bricked up.

    Opened in 1898, and closed in 1968, it was on the Great Central railway. The southern cutting was home to Nottingham Victoria station. All that remains of the station now is the clock tower, and the deep cutting has been filled with a giant concrete multi story car park. A sign of the times.
