    Default Haddon tunnel..Derbyshire.


    This is one railway tunnel I have been wanting to see for a while.so whilst up north with janovitch and man gone wrong,we gave it a look.been debating on getting a new torch for a while and decided on a lenser head torch,so a great place to try it out.the tunnel did not dissapont at all.sitting at 1058 yards it was a fair length to walk.the curve at the start was quite amazing and the portholes were quite lovely too with ferns growing there.the line runs through an estate as the owner did not want the train running through his land.the line finally shut in 1867 after over a hundred yrs of use.i have read that there has been a petition to reopen the line which would include restoring the tunnel.i think it may be a mammoth task but not impossible.

    I would not bet on that any time soon, given that Peak Rail's current management are disfunctional, to put it politely.
