Jan 2022 – Nottingham.

The city of Nottingham lost its famous Victoria station in 1967 – and a significant amount of railway heritage has been obliterated from the city since then. However, Thurland Street Tunnel, which brought the Great Central Railway into the station, remains intact. A local history group, Nottingham’s Railways Remembered, arranged three visits to the tunnel in 2018 but recently the Council have stopped any further visits and told the group’s leader, Janine Tanner, to stop contacting them with requests. The Council say the tunnel is unsafe and that it would take up too much staff time to supervise any visits – two reasons which sound somewhat contradictory. See Link to RR Article here (Alan Green)
