    Default Crown Street tunnel Liverpool, December 2012.l


    The Crown street tunnel is 291 yds long,
    running from Edge Hill to Crown street (this end is now buried).
    Theres are no air shafts
    The tunnel opened in 1829, closed in 1972.
    This was the first tunnel in the world to run under streets
    and alot is cut through the face, with no brick lining.









    this gap leads to the Wapping tunnel

    Those are great shots, the stalagtites are impressive.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
