Waterloo Tunnel/Victoria Tunnel, Liverpool

I had this place marked on a map ever since Christmas last year but had never got round to doing it. I meet up with the usual suspects Rookie, Appo & Jimmy in Liverpool and set off into the dark tunnels.

Waterloo tunnel was opened in 1849 and is roughly 860 meters long, after a short cutting you then enter into Victoria tunnel which was also opened the same year but is longest of the two tunnels emerging at edge hill over a distance of 2745m.

The western end of the tunnel ends at Waterloo dock and both were finally closed in November 1972 although the Edge Hill end of the Victoria tunnel is still used for shunting.
