    This tunnel was once used to bring down stone from Horncliffe Quarry.
    The stone was then loaded onto carriages to be took wherever by rail.
    (the same railway that is now the "East Lancashire Railway").
    It runs under the hillside, under Bury Road, and a couple of fields before reaching the railside.

    Later it was used as an air raid shelter.
    The only evidence of this was a toilet and a rusty part of a lamp.
    There is 3 parts to the shelter, each divided by a brick blast wall.

    The tunnel has been blocked off around 60metres in :mad:
