Located just off covert lane coming away from Scraptoft on the outskirts of Leicester, is the Ingarsby Tunnel (also known as the Thurnby Tunnel). This was on the Great Northern Line. It is filled in at the North entrance and the south entrance has a 4-5mm sheet of metal, but someone has cut a hole in one corner with, looking at the cutting area, what was a welder. There is an air shaft half way along.
Just 200 yards from the south portal is an Aquaduct that was built to divert a stream going through the planned route of the line when constructed.
Explored with The Wombat.
