Hindlow Tunnel

in the pitch black and unable to turn the light on due to the quarry that this runs through the middle of being very active I climbed the embankment and followed the lines.

The 1940s map shows a station not far beyond this short railway tunnel. These days only freight (quarry traffic) uses the line. The line descends a significant slope here; drivers are asked to engage wagon brakes

The tunnel is a vast double lined brick arch tunnel with lime dust everywhere from the quarry that it runs under. there are armoured cables running the length of the tunnel that have been pikeyed

On with the pics

Buxton Cemetery.

The exhaust on my car was split so I needed some where close for a few pics so I headed to Buxton Cemetery.

As I walked along I saw a statue reaching out and had to capture it.

Just want to make this clear!

You are offered the use any of my pictures for fee of £1000 per picture per use. You may accept this offer by using the pictures and awaiting the invoice. Alternatively you can contact me before using the pictures to negotiate a fee.

Basically if I see that you have posted my pics on your website without my permission expect me to hunt you down and invoice or skin you alive.

Burbage Tunnel

a disused railway tunnel, Burbage,which carried the old Macclesfield Road over the line. Viewed looking NE over Burbage and Buxton. The bridge is completely filled some 15 yards in. To the north west lies the 500 yd Burbage Tunnel which took the line into the Goyt Valley.

It's far too wet to go draining so I decided to head down an old train tunnel I was told about in the middle of the Derbyshire hills.

Water was pouring out of the roof so taking pics was difficult with the high level of moisture in the air but I carried on regardless.

The tunnel has had all the features pretty much stripped out or bricked off so it's basically just a long dark and very wet massive tunnel.
