Disused Railway Tunnel under Dawley- Wellington Road
Disused railway tunnel. Circa 1856 for the Wellington and Severn Junction Railway. Blue engineering bricks with stone dressings. Brick parabolic arch tunnel, with portal at either end with rusticated stone voussoirs and keyblock to the arch, stone bullnose cornice and parapet and splayed and ramped abutment wings with stone coping and small terminal piers. The tunnel is cut through the embankment of the road above. The Wellington and Severn Junction Railway was authorised in 1853. A short single track line from the main line to Horsehay was opened in 1857 and extended as far as Lightmoor in 1859. Although the Company was leased by GWR, initially most of the goods traffic was run by the Coalbrookdale Company.
