Tunnel carriage drive, now a footway, connecting the Park Estate with Derby Road. Begun 1844, and completed 1855 by TC Hine of Nottingham for the fifth Duke of Newcastle. Round-arched, unlined rock-cut tunnel, approx. 125m long. The Derby Road entrance is covered by late C20 buildings. In the centre, a large light shaft with rounded ends, approx 25m x 10m, with rock-faced stone lining and parapet walls, with chamfered ashlar coping. At the north end, a stone winder stair with stone piers and renewed iron handrails, leading to a gateway on Upper College Street. This building is an important feature of the Park Estate development, largely directed by TC Hine as surveyor to the Newcastle Estates.
