visited with @ACID- REFLUX ,
thanks for the help & support doing this.

The Gomersal tunnel is 819yds long,
running from east to west passes beneath the settlement of Gomersal.
The east portal lies in a steep cutting with retaining walls, are in average condition
there's 1 air shaft (capped),
theres refuges on both sides of the tunnel.
The west portal & cutting are in average condition.
This was once buried beneath infill which has recently been removed,
leaving the brick access steps & shaft behind.
The tunnel is mostly water free except for a bit by the air shaft,
the tunnel opened in 1900 & closed in 1966
forms part of the Leeds new route from Farnley (Leeds) to Cleckheaton.
