Removal of a tunnel on LMS railway line between Belper and Ambergate
early 20th century
About this image
This is the removal of Longlands Tunnel, just south of Ambergate, which was completed in 1932. The loops at Broadholme were extended towards Ambergate Junction thus requiring the removal of the tunnel bottleneck. This work was part of the improvements at Ambergate Junction which included the addition of a second bridge over the Derwent.
