    Visited the wapping tunnels Liverpool and a big thanks to @blacksnake for taking us down there and giving us all the history of the tunnels. Also @Telf @Will Knot and @Dangle_Angle thanks lads was a really good day and had a good laugh enjoyed the wirewool spinning and the dangley things hanging from the tunnel roof I really wasn't expecting them really nice. N with my history and a few pictures ....

    The Liverpool and Manchester Railway (L&MR) system provided the world’s first passenger railway stations where services were hauled by timetabled locomotives. The railway line opened on 15 September 1830 and originally ran from Liverpool’s passenger terminus [Crown Street] to its counterpart Manchester terminus [Liverpool Road]. The L&MR thus also became the first inter-city railway.

    The route extended some 31 miles (50 km) and was an outstanding engineering achievement of its era. It included the world’s first railway tunnel under a major city: the 1.3 mile (2 km) Wapping Tunnel was bored through sandstone from Wapping Goods station, at the southern end of Liverpool docks, to the district of Edge Hill. The railway also included a viaduct, comprising 9 arches, across the Sankey Valley and a 2 miles long rock cutting at Olive Mount. When the line opened, George Stephenson’s locomotive “Rocket” conveyed a number of dignitaries, including the then prime minister, the Duke of Wellington.

    Bet Alex wasn't pleased about that. The tunnel has some interesting history.
