Betchworth Tunnel
Betchworth Tunnel
This short tunnel (385 yards long - daylight beyond the north portal can be seen in the photo) is on the Dorking to Horsham railway. It runs through the upper greensand Deepdene Ridge. It was built in 1867, but a collapse in 1887 led to its closure for over six months.
