Visited with Icutyou.

Part of the North Cornwall Railway, Trelill Tunnel is situated between Bodmin and Camelford. It is 333 yrds in length and is built on a slight curve. The tunnel served to take the line below the Village of Trelill - allowing a more direct route between Halwill in Devon and Padstow in Cornwall.
The line closed on the 3rd October 1966 as part of Beeching's cull of unprofitable lines.

Here are the photos from our 2 visits to Trelill.
