NZ7516 : Ridge lane abandoned tramway tunnel

near to Roxby, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Ridge lane abandoned tramway tunnel
Ridge lane abandoned tramway tunnel
The last tram to run through here was in 1916. A new inclined section was built from the mine site North to connect with the nearby Middlesbrough-Whitby line. The tunnel was then surplus to requirements and abandoned. Ridge Lane tunnel is around 400 yards long. I was really pleased to see the old sleepers still place; they still had the track bolts intact. It's easy to imagine the rails still in situ on this shot.
