Sandsend Tunnel

Sandsend tunnel minus railway tracks, this view dating from the 1960s is today remarkably unchanged. All the tunnels on this section of the line closed pre-Dr Beeching in the late 1950s are today ‘bricked up’ to prevent access. They do give an idea of the difficulties the Victorian builders had in developing the line as it hugged the coast from Whitby to Saltburn. This image and those following are part of a series of views taken by Robert Goundry in the early and late 1960s.
