The ventilation shaft for Oxendon Tunnels

You can find this ventilation shaft in a field just to the edge of Great Oxendon village. It served the twin Oxendon tunnels on the Market Harborough to Northampton railway line.

That line closed in 1981 (I was on the last train), and today you can walk and cycle through one of the tunnels on the Brampton Valley Way.

I was also taken with an old metal gate post that stands by the shaft.
