A cyclist riding in to Shute Shelve Tunnel at the South Portal Cyclist



The Strawberry Line Trail runs (mostly) along the route of the old Strawberry Line Railway in Somerset and North Somerset, in the South West of England.

The trail currently runs from Yatton to Cheddar but there is a petition to have it extended to Wells.

Here you go...You can sign the petition, if you want!

Interesting that there is no brick portal and is carved directly out of the limestone. 

The attached gives some very interesting background info. on Shute Shelve Tunnel... The tunnel is lined internally up to about half-way through from the North portal. The transition is easy to see when you are in there but you will need a torch!!
