Here's a new one. Not ever seen anything from here before...The Batley Carr tunnel.
At 179 yards, Batley Carr tunnel, Dewsbury is fairly short, and has been closed to all traffic since 1965. It opened in 1880 and was one of three routes the express trains from Kings Cross to Bradford took.
Today, the southern portal is all that is left; the northern one disappeared and the tunnel partly backfilled.
Access to the tunnel is through a breakers yard.
For half of the tunnel, the floor has been raised by a couple of metres and levelled off. Slightly dodgy pictures as I only had 10 minutes...
The tunnel has been walled up just beyond the open airshaft, although tiny gaps can be seen around the edge. Todays regret was not trying to see beyond the wall.

Leaving, 10 minutes later.
