Airshaft on Totley Moss
Airshaft on Totley Moss
This late Victorian airshaft ventilates the Totley Tunnel which connects Totley in the south western suburbs of Sheffield with Grindleford in Derbyshire. As I tarried by the airshaft I heard a train passing far below. The 3.5 mile long tunnel opened in 1893 and took five years to construct.
