To the left are the original railway tunnels built in the 1840s. These were replaced by the larger tunnel to the right which opened in 1953 to accommodate electric trains. It was short lived - passenger services ended in 1973 and the last freight train was in 1981. This tunnel is now used to carry high voltage electricity cables across the Pennine moors.
