Visited with billy no mates.

Glad I got to see this, wish I'd been years ago.

This was built in 1941 as a way to get ammunition from the railway at Farleigh Down to the ammunition depot at Monkton Farleigh. The tunnel was designed to handle 1000 tons of ammunition daily.

I knew the tunnel was long but didn't know it was 2,200 yards long:eek:

Remains of the rail sidings.
