Farleigh Down tunnel is about 1 mile long and use to join Monkton Farleigh central ammunition depot to the railway.

Ammunition trains would unload onto gauge trucks and then go down the slope shaft into the loading area.

After this it has been blocked up by wansdyke security. They are just the other side of the wall so you have to be quiet in this area.

There is also some old workings on the left through a hole in a wall.

Some more photos of the loading area.
