  1. How do you get to the disused tunnel in Bathpool park, I have recently moved to the area and am interested in local history. It’s more curiosity than anything else.

    1. Hi Claire,

      The tunnels are accessible from the main car park off Boathorse Road. As you face the path leading to the play area/reservoir, it is down the embankment to your right. See here on Google Maps. You can see from the satellite image where the tracks used to lie as there is a long gap in the trees. A tunnel lies at each end. I hope this helps!

      Regards the history of the place, Bathpool in particular, check this page out. Lots of information about the Black Panther Murder in ’75.
