Eastern portal of old railway tunnel at Beamish
The old rail route through Beamish in County Durham now has the responsibility of carrying three named paths and cycle routes: the 'C2C Cycle Route', the 'Great North Forest Heritage Trail' and the 'Consett and Sunderland Railway Path'.
The tunnel seen here is one of two that follow in close succession neither of which cuts through particularly high ground; it's surprising that the route was tunnelled rather than cuttings being made.
