The tracks still left in situ poking out of the mud were a real bonus, especially as the last train to run over them was 1917. The tunnel was then abandoned when a connection with the Middlesbrough to Whitby line was created. Surprisingly there was only one man killed down here when a driver fell before waggons in 1876.

From this position I first thought I could see a brick wall blocking off the tunnel. As I navigated down the tunnel, it became clear this was roof collapse number two. Once over the collapse, I could see the tunnel had collapsed and failed for the 3rd time. The tunnel was running down grade and the water was waist deep at this point.
