    Catesby tunnel is a bit of a monster at 2997 yards.
    It was opened in 1897 and closed in 1966 and was situated on the old Rugby to Woodford GCR line.
    Visited with Diehardlove on a visit after work that ended up being very late.
    On previous reports the tunnel seemed to be open, it has now been locked at both ends and is a very tight squeeze to get in.

    So off we went for the next few hours.....

    The Southern portal

    The drains running up the centre of the tunnel were open so we had to watch our footing!

    There were 3 large refuges along the way and numerous smaller ones

    Finally the Northern portal, it was a bit wet this end of the tunnel. :rolleyes:
