This is Newline tunnel, just south of Bacup, on the steeply graded line to Rochdale. Closed in 1947 the track remained for many years and the tunnel featured in a Hayley Mills scene in the film Whistle down the Wind as did the Lee Moor Bridge See image 23306. The tunnel has subsequently been turned into a vehicle workshop.
