    Part of the Drake’s Trail and the Dartmoor Way, this 374-yard (341 m) tunnel was built by Brunel in the mid-1850s for the South Devon & Tavistock Railway. After the line closed, it sat abandoned for decades before being resurfaced and opened as a foot and cycle path.

    The tunnel is lit and is a fun addition to an already amazing route. It has a tendency to drip on the heads of those who use it though!

    This tunnel was closed for about 50 years and it was very much a missing link on the disused railway. Now that its been re-established, it's allowed the re-opening of the Brunel's South Devon and Tavistock Railway route, for cyclists and pedestrians, between Plymouth and Tavistock.
