Visited her a couple of times recently, once with Littlelaura and again with Diehardlove, and Burb147.

The tunnel opened in 1851 and was a double track line for London and north Westerns Rugby to Luffenham route. The tunnels 448 yards long and unusually has no refuges. The line was singled in 1907 and was closed in 1966.

Nice one Tom, that really does remind me of Withcall! Calcification is really weird and definetly lends an Alien feel to a Railway Tunnel!:)
