    Visited this whilst on a boozy hiking weekend in Yorkshire.

    Whilst our third comrade was nursing a hangover, myself & KM Punk set out to explore this and the nearby viaduct.

    I’d read the tunnel was dangerous, but were complacent till we reached the collapse. Although it had obviously happened a few years ago, the tunnel is marked as dangerous. However, this was an underground explore set in a picturesque mountain landscape. I don’t think I’ve visited a portal with such a view before.



    Opened 1878, Last passenger train 1959. Single track curved bore; 245 yards. Work has been carried out to improve drainage at each cutting, but ground movement and lack of maintenance has caused severe distortions of the lining. A section of the ceiling has collapsed. It is currently used as storage for farm machinery. It is an aspiration of the heritage railway to reopen the tunnel, which will require significant work.

    Further history available on the most excellent Forgotton relics website.

    The portal is on the RH side, in shadow

    Now. This is where KM Punk pulled the plug. Note the gap in the ceiling, and the blocks on the floor.
