Alfreton old tunnel originally linked Nottingham and Sheffield.  It now sits disused alongside an operational tunnel.

Running at a length of 840 yards (just over 750 metres), the tunnel once housed a double-tracked line which explains its width and high ceiling.  Three air-shafts are located throughout the structure.

Driving through the tunnel - which is close to the running line - is possible.  There is limited parking at the southern end.

The tunnel is the perfect location for driving or atmospheric sequences.

Subject to a minimum rental period.  Due to lead-in time and safety requirements, only productions in bands B and C should apply.
