Default Tiviot Dale Rail Tunnel, Manchester 24/09/10 - 26-09-2010, 20:57

Visited with Ojay, Woodburner, Doc P, and AEB.

After exploring Dodge Hill Air Raid Shelters, Ojay told us about this beaut of a tunnel literally next to the shelters.

The tunnel was 252 yards long and ran under the air raid shelters, and has now been backfilled from either end. This makes for a very awkward stoop to get to the centre of the tunnel. In the center of the tunnel a massive frame has been constructed to support the old brickwork to prevent collapse.







Old sleepers on the floor


Old school wedges between the tunnel roof and the frame






Great end to the night this was, good place for dicking about
