    Default Long Clawson Tunnel (from the North), Lecicestershire, July 2017


    Last time I did this place earlier in the year I was a bit pushed for time and it is quite a long tunnel. Hence I missed the north portal. So to put this right I set off to see it. Finding the north entrance to the tunnel is much more difficult than approaching from the south but find it I did in the end.

    Won't do the history bit as I did it before. You can find it HERE with my original report.

    Hence let's get straight on to the pictures:

    Great stuff.... Done this from the Landyke Lane end. The former infilled cutting down to the south portal and got covered in cow poo. Great tunnel to walk, minus the horrible palisade gates BR Residuary seem to supply old tunnels these days.
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Cheers mate. But are you sure about the pallisade gates?
