Benniworth Tunnel

On a recent expedition, I discovered this old rail tunnel in the Lincolnshire Wolds - which was no mean feat,- I had the nettle stings, mud scrapes and bruises [from being whacked by various tree branches during my 'controlled descent' of the overgrown gulley] to prove it!


The tunnel seems to be Victorian, from the steeply vaulted roof, and is 'faced and lined' with higher grade materials [for show] at each end but bellies out to a larger bore built of red brick further in.


There's no trickery with this one, only ambient light and a 'star effect' courtesy of an f8 aperture.
