    Default Haddon tunnel, Derbyshire, Jun15


    First visited a few years ago, but always wanted to return in the summer with the foliage in full bloom. The mists inside made this difficult to illuminate, so I have concentrated my report on the ambient lighting from the airshafts. This still remains one of my favourite tunnels, and a return visit did not disappoint.
    Explored with KM Punk.


    1058 yards long, it was built in 1862 so the Duke of Rutland wouldn’t have to see a train line run along his estate near Haddon Hall. Part of the Beeching report, it closed in 1968. There have been proposals to reopen the tunnel as a footpath, and more recently as an extension to the peak rail heritage line.
