Great Oxendon Northamptonshire 24th June 2020

Great Oxendon Northamptonshire 24th June 2020 

Is this the light at the end of the tunnel that we keep being told about?

Great Oxendon tunnel (414m) is on the closed ex-LNWR Northampton to Market Harborough line & today the Brampton Valley Way foot/cyclepath passes through one of the 2 single line bores. This is the northern portal and another candidate for HFF!

The line was opened in 1859 by the LNWR and closed to passenger services in 1960 although sleeper services from St Pancras passed this way until 1973 and freight until full closure in 1981.

A great capture the amount of bricks they used was incredible, I've not been in that one although it looks part of a good walk, trains would be better !! HFF I hope you have a good weekend

A lovely shot and the archway at the mouth of the tunnel is really impressive. I like the figure of the lady heading into the dark interior. She offers a good sense of scale. Well captured. I am not sure I would feel very safe walking through the dark tunnel. HFF and have a good weekend.
