The Headstone Tunnel
Some years ago on a previous visit to Monsal Dale we found that the Headstone Tunnel was boarded up and there was no way through. Now it has been opened up and people can walk or cycle through. It forms part of the Monsal Trail.
Built by the Midland Railway it formed part of a main line rail link between London and Manchester.
Partway through the tunnel. During daylight hours it is lit up.
Light at the end of the tunnel. Approaching the far end.
Married. Semi-retired. I live in a village on the coast in the East Neuk of Fife. Interested in the flora and fauna of this lovely area, and recording my observations of wild-life at the shore, in the countryside, and in our garden. Also, a bit about the local area and some reviews of books, concerts, plays that I've enjoyed.
Although, I hope to take photos of what I see, I am not an expert photographer, however, I hope that the photos will be a good record of my observations of the natural world in a small part of Scotland.
Thank you for viewing. Unless otherwise specifically stated, all photographs have all been taken by me with a Fugi Finepix camera (A920 or S1000fd since the beginning of 2009). Happy for them to be downloaded for personal use or educational purposes, but please do not use any of the photos for commercial gain.
