Bank House Railway Tunnel, Copley.
Bank House Tunnel ( Also Known as Copley Tunnel) is a short curved railway tunnel built in to the hillside through a rock face around Salterhebble Hill, Halifax. The tunnel carries the line connecting Sowerby Bridge with Halifax and I have been unable to find the exact date but I assume as Copley Viaduct opened in 1852, the tunnel opened at a similar time. The line merges with original branch line from Greetland to Halifax a few hundred yards up from the tunnel.
The pictures around the tunnel were taken using a Polaroid iS2132 bridge camera on October 25 2014.
The following picture was taken of the tunnel and surrounding valley from the top of Siddal, using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera on the 9 April 2017.
The picture shows the tunnel to the centre. All Saints church, Salterhebble can be seen on the hillside to the right with North Dean Woods in the distance beyond the tunnel.
These pictures can also be seen on Flickr. I also have pictures available to view on Clickasnap. Please take a moment to view them via the link below as each view of over 10 seconds supports my blog and photography.
