Lees Moor Tunnel

Lees Moor Tunnel, on the Great Northern route from Keighley and Queensbury, was known by drivers as ‘the hell hole’, presumably due to the pitch darkness and squealing of wheels as their engine negotiated the 90 degree curve. When heading from Keighley, trains entered the tunnel in a southerly direction but exited, 1,533 yards later, traveling east.
