Built by the renowned civil engineer George Stephenson the one-mile tunnel was first opened in 1832 and was said to be longest railway tunnel in the world at the time of completion. Originally the tunnel was used to transport coal into the city of Leicester but after 28 years of operation the tunnel fell into disuse. It has had a unique variety of uses until today, where under council ownership, tours take place.
The Graduates and Students Committee are lucky to have the opportunity for a private tour led by the Leicestershire Industrial History Society for up to 25 ICE members. The guided tour will explore the first 100 m of the tunnel and first ventilation shaft while learning about how it was built and the history of the tunnel.
