Greenway Railway Tunnel, Torbay, June 2010




Greenway Estate is near Paignton, Devon and has been an important property for 500 years standing at a crossing point of the river Dart. As the railway approached Greenway House in the late 1800s, a link was needed through the estate to reach the ferry. The owner at the time had fought a proposal for a railway to run across his land down to Greenway Quay from where passengers could travel on to Dartmouth by boat. A compromise was agreed though, with the building of the 495 yard Greenway tunnel that runs under Greenway, and today transports tourists along the steam railway from Paignton to Kingswear.
