After a failed attempt at trying to find the open end of this last year I went back and realised I had walked/hiked past the end by about a 1/4m which shows how hidden this is during the summer.

It was worth the wait unfortunately these are the last pictures I took with my old phone, if I had have had my new phone they would have been better but they are what they are.

Disappointed to see some dirty asshole had very recently left packs of spent batteries on the floor in two places, i hope that scrubber wasn't someone from this site.

Haddon Tunnel was built by the Midland Railway in 1863 when extending the Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Midlands Junction Railway from Rowsley to Buxton in Derbyshire, England.
The tunnel was constructed to hide the railway from the view of the Duke of Rutland where the line passed Haddon Hall. The tunnel rises towards Bakewell on a gradient of 1:102, is 1,058 yards (967 m) long and was mostly built by the cut and cover method. It was built with five ventilation shafts, one was the full width of the double-track tunnel, the deepest was 12 feet (3.7 m).

There have been many attempts to get the tunnel open again if for nothing else than to extend the monsal trail however the owners of Haddon Hall are notorious assholes and thwart any attempt to rescue and secure a piece of British history.
The last deal the Haddon committee tried to do was that the tunnel could be accessed again as long as peak rail (or whoever it was) paid for all nessacary road and bridge modifications for Haddon Hall to be able to get film crew vehicles in and out of site which would have been millions,
Understandably they were told to fuck right off.

I got in the tunnel with perhaps 7 lights, i was not going to let it beat me.
Only one of my lights even touched the surface, the lenser p7r, all the shots ive seen of well lit tunnels i wanted to replicate went out the window at that point.
That said i feel my new camera phone would pick more up but I did what what I could with the tools and knowledge at hand.

Cheers bud, not as nice as yours but i was reasonably happy with them.
It was the last outing with that phone, the new one seems much better in dim light so I'm hoping my shots will improve.
