Built in 1863, the tunnel was built for trains running from King's Cross York Road (an annex of the main station), towards Moorgate.  Although the station was demolished in the 1970s, the tunnel survives.

With an overall length of 350 metres, the opening section of the single-bore tunnel runs in a straight line for 200 metres. It then hits a fork, with one tunnel reaching a dead-end, the other sharply curving to the East, opening out to an air shaft.

*There are currently construction works outside the tunnel, meaning pedestrian and vehicular access is not possible. The works are due to complete in December 2020.

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