Brief History of the Camden Service Tunnel

The Camden Service Tunnel, often called the Camden Rat Hole served as an empty carriage line between Willesden and Euston. It runs from south of Primrose Hill to where it connected to the Broad Street line, hidden beneath mainline tracks that run directly above. The distinctive sound of trains running overhead can be heard while inside the tunnel – it always amazes me how much can be heard while deep under the streets of London.

Our Visit
This was a fun visit in the company of Extreme Ironing, Maniac and Slayaaa. The darkness of the tunnels provided plenty of opportunity to get creative with lighting – although all the images turned out pretty similar!
