The tunnel dates to the mid 19th century and may be associated with the portal of the Victoria Tunnel (HER4091).The tunnel may represent a later route of the subterranean wagonway but must have also functioned as a route providing direct access to the industrialbuildings on the banks of the Ouseburn. Now part of the Toffee Factory office buildings.
