Formerly the railway from St Blazey to Fowey, after closure in 1968 the trackbed was converted to a road for lorries loaded with china clay to reach Fowey Docks. They have to pass through the narrow 1173-yard-long Pinnock Tunnel, which is equipped with traffic lights.

Pinnock Tunnel was originally on the line from St Blazey to Lostwithiel via Fowey and is the longest tunnel in Cornwall. Since the closure of the railway it has been used as a haul route by Imerys and their predecessors to give access from Par to Fowey docks.
