    Default Gomersal Tunnel nr. Cleckheaton, W.Yorks.


    I didn't realise until yesterday, that you could walk right up to the (south) portal of this tunnel as there are no paths showing on the O.S. map, but it's easily accessible. So here are the 2 pics I took:






    A previous thread (https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/mai...er-2010-a.html) was about 8 years ago, so there doesn't seem to be any change.

    I've just joined, so hope these are ok

    What's the brick pillar in aide of? To stop cars driving up the tunnel?

    I thought as above, is it brick? looks decidedly unstable.
    Did u not go in & get some more pics? I would suggest that as your next step & get a full report up ;-)
    What the hell am I doing, I mean really at my age!

    How come you never went in?
    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.

    I thought that, maybe he didn't have a light or feel safe, in which case he was quite sensibly

    @ocelot397 - the brick structure at the western end was to allow access for inspections after the approach cutting was infilled. But in 1997 Railtrack and Kirklees Council decided to stop any further tipping on the site. Hence it is a brick access shaft that would have been surrounded by earth.

    Thanks for the replies. The link I added to the old thread (and the reply from Hughie D) explain the brick pillar. Just inside is a full-width steel fencing, though a couple of bars are forced apart enough to allow access....and I didn't have a torch. The early thread from Jan.2011 shows that someone got some access.

    Curious tunnel!
    If you're able to get some shots inside these places in the future, then it helps, but appreciate you taking the time to make a report :)
