Miley Railway Tunnel, Preston

The Miley Tunnel running under Preston is 862 yards long and linked the Longridge line to the main Preston line. Opening in around 1840 for freight, the first passenger trains used the tunnel in 1856, though these stopped by 1930. Goods traffic also declined and by the 1980’s the line was unused. The tracks are still present but they are overgrown and the tunnel is abandoned.

There is a tradition though that the tunnel is haunted by a young girl that was said to have been pushed or accidently fell to her death from a moving train in the late 19th century and now appears as a Grey Lady.
