    Im just rooting through some old reports, found this one and thought i would share!

    Visited with thenewmendoza

    opened in the 1860s for the lancashire and yorkshire railway. the werneth tunnel and the oldham central tunnel stand between oldham werneth station and oldham mumps station on the now closed oldham loop line.

    werneth tunnel measures 471yards and central is 449yards long. the 2 are seperated by a short cutting.

    the line closed for conversion to metrolink trams on the 3rd october 2009.

    our journey starts on the desolate platforms of oldham werneth station..


    we then turn round to see the southern portal of oldham werneth tunnel

    interior, oldham werneth.

    refuge, oldham werneth

    looking up the cutting from werneth to central tunnel

    werneth north portal

    central, south portal

    central, interior. note the curve!!


    central, north portal.

    track crossing

    and now a brucie bonus....... the remains of the oldham mumps lever frame. still extant under the signal box!!

    a good evening out, very chilled and VERY strange being in a tunnel walking down the 4 foot.
