Toft tunnel near Bourne, Lincs, was the second of two tunnels that day, visited with King Mongoose.

Part of the former Bourne-Saxby railway line, it was twin track, 330 yards long; opened in 1893, and closed in 1959. Interesting facts are it took 400 men, 2.5 million bricks and 2 years to build.

A comprehensive history can be found here:

Today, the tunnel is surrounded by a nature reserve, with park benches, steps, and a pleasant woodland trail above the tunnel linking both portals. The tunnel itself is in fair condition, and reasonably dry. The entrances are ‘gated’.
