    Of the many abandoned tunnels in Nottingham, Mapperley tunnel is deep at 40mtrs, opened in 1876, and closed in 1960, is accessible, but in terrible condition due to mining subsidence, and a previous collapse.

    The south portal is possibly the area in worst condition, with crumbling brickwork, and large chunks of masonry fallen from the top, but having said that it was raining more deep inside the tunnel than outside it! Found evidence of someone setting of fireworks inside; a bit reckless, as a sudden loud noise might bring the roof down.

    The tunnel was 1132 yards long, but is now blocked after the second airshaft behind an astonishing monument to flytipping. It was built in open countryside at the time, but is now being slowly surrounded by housing estates. Visited with King Mongoose, and a new torch.
