Visited with Scotty, Scrub and James PP - I had found this lead a while ago and last week we reccy'd this site & returned yesterday to do the photoshoot...

Armed with search blasters, LED wands and loads of torches we set off into the darkness....

This tunnel was opened on wednesday 17th May 1876 as part of the London and South-Western Railway. The station was on the site of the Plymouth CFE, and the original railings can still be seen.

During the Great war the king and queen arrived here to meet the plymouth mayor and military brass....

it was closed to passengers in 1964 and finally to goods in 1971...

the tunnels are largely litter free due to the darkness and unknown location.... they pass under devonport park and are around a mile long....a sewer pipe for new houses runs through the tunnel for much of its length, and many "refuges" (for rail workers) provide interesting features...
