Monkton Farleigh Down Sidings

Farleigh down sidings was used during WW2 to transport ammunition from Monkton Farleigh ammunition depot. The tunnel is approximately a mile long, the first half of the tunnel was cut and covered as this was on a steady incline before the steep hill up to Monkton Farleigh depot. Before the tunnel was built ammunition was transported to the sidings via a aerial ropeway.
