    It was a beautiful sunny spring morning in South Yorkshire, so what better way to enjoy it than go for a walk in a tunnel :crazy

    Bit of history from www.hullandbarnsleyrailway.org.uk/

    The Barnsdale Tunnel cuts under the A1[edit:actually it doesn't go under the A1] right next to Barnsdale Bar Services (Northbound side, just after the turn off for Pontefract). You can park up at the Little Chef and ask the helpful bloke sweeping up for directions.

    The tunnel is a dead straight 1226 yards with limestone cuttings at either end.

    On with the pics (this was my first attempt at lightpainting and long exposures, so bear with me on some of them)

    1. eastern portal - I know we're not supposed to show access points, but don't think ther's any harm here ;)


    2. eastern portal - you can just see the other end in the distance


    3. refuge


    4. water run off


    5. wall covered by limestone


    6. couldn't see where this bit had come from, so didn't hang around too long :eek:


    7. me taking refuge


    8. western portal, complete with tripod that some stupid arse has left in shot


    Not the most thrilling of locations, but easily accessible if you're driving up the A1 and good for practicing lightpainting.
