Eastern portal of the Butterley Tunnel on the Cromford Canal
This photograph shows the eastern portal of the Butterley Tunnel on the Cromford Canal. Over time mine working caused the level of the land to drop and in July1900, a (second) roof collapse inside the Butterley Tunnel caused its closure. The Midland Railway (who owned the Cromford canal at this time) refused to repair the tunnel. A government sponsored report showed that the headroom inside the tunnel had become very low in parts and the brickwork lining was in a very dangerous state and so the closure became permanent.
