Memories: Kathy & Trudy

On 11th February 1960, Kathy Leonard and Trudy Baxendale walked through Queensbury Tunnel with four school friends. It was an unforgettable adventure.

This is what happened when they came back for the first time, 58 years later, walking down the cutting towards the overgrown entrance. Priceless memories.

For the past four years, a campaign group has been working hard to save the tunnel from abandonment plans being developed by Highways England and reopen it as a cycle path.
