List of Tunnels in The United Kingdom

List of tunnels in the United Kingdom lists road, railway, waterway and some other forms of tunnel in the United Kingdom.

A tunnel is an underground passageway with no defined minimum length, though it may be considered to be at least twice as long as wide. Some civic planners define a tunnel as 0.1 miles (160 metres) in length or longer.

A tunnel may be for pedestrians or cyclists, for general road traffic, for motor vehicles only, for rail traffic, or for a canal. Some are aqueducts, constructed purely for carrying water—for consumption, for hydroelectric purposes or as sewers—while others carry other services such as telecommunications cables. There are even tunnels designed as wildlife crossings for European badgers and other endangered species.

The longest tunnel in the United Kingdom is the Thirlmere Aqueduct, an underground aqueduct which carries water from Thirlmere to Manchester. The aqueduct opened in 1894 and it remains the longest tunnel in the world at 95.7 miles long. The Standedge Tunnel at 5,029 metres (3.25 miles) is the longest canal tunnel in the United Kingdom.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, kingdom, united and/or list:

    Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    Then he looked up at his disciples and said: Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
    Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled.
    Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.
    Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account of the Son of Man.
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 6:20-22.

    Printer, philosopher, scientist, author and patriot, impeccable husband and citizen, why isn’t he an archetype? Pioneers, Oh Pioneers! Benjamin was one of the greatest pioneers of the United States. Yet we just can’t do with him. What’s wrong with him then? Or what’s wrong with us?
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
