The Quarry tramway at Charlestown looking north from the top of the limekilns through the tunnel towards the stationery engine at the Gin Head and thence to West Quarry. Loaded trucks would come down the incline and the limestone would be tipped straight into the top of the kilns. The tunnel remains intact and open despite being around 200 years old. In his younger days the photographer crawled through the tunnel on a number of occasions - but it is certainly not to be recommended today!
