    This is a short tunnel but well worth the walk, set in the stunning surroundings of Tintern very close to the famous abbey.​

    Some History​


    Just 182 yards in length and built by Reed Bros of London, curvature prevents one end of the tunnel being seen from the other. The first train to climb its 1:80 rising gradient towards Chepstow did so on 1st November 1876; the last one enjoyed the experience on 6th January 1964.​

    Plans have been approved for the tunnel to become a footpath. The southern Portal comes out on the river wye where the railway bridge once stood leading to Tintern Station which is now a museum

    Some pics​

    Nice one, Lenston. How do you get such a defined star effect on the light? Is it your filter?

    Yeah there was a Swiss stylee house a bit back from the Tintern portal (it was covered in secca screens and such) that used to have a recorded message that played if you interrupted its beams.
