Conisbrough/ Edlington Tunnel, South Yorkshire


A now disused water pipe in a tunnel built around 1892 to supply water to Edlington/ Warmsworth from Thrybergh Reservoir, running through Denaby and Conisbrough.

The tunnel consists of various types of construction, running for around 1200 metres, is around 3-4 ft wide by around 4-7 ft tall and features 4 ventilation shafts.

The pipe itself is around 30cm in diameter, with each joined section being around 3 metres long.
