Scotswood, Shafto Street, railway tunnel
Railway Tunnel Portal
Blocked tunnel portals on Shaft Street and Gregson Street. Both portals are blocked in late 20th century brown brick. The portals are constructed of snecked rough-faced stone with rock-faced and margined dressings, they have segmental arches with raised keystones and a band above. Their parapets have low end piers and a rock-faced coping (topped by more recent iron rails). The coping is ramped steeply down over the curving wing-walls.
