Does Anybody Recognise This Tunnel?

Someone sent me this picture and asked if I knew where it was.

I don’t But do I know a man or woman who does?

  1. I think it is a subway at a major railway station. The lower sections of the roof are where the track runs overhead.

    It looks a bit like Reading, which has a bend at the end, but it is not the current colour scheme, however the tiling was replaced during the upgrade during the teens.

  4. I can’t put my finger on it but it’s familiar and definitely a pedestrian subway at a railway station. My travel generally has included Clapham Junction, Waterloo, Victoria, Euston

  5. If you look carefully at the roof/ceiling, the nearest part reduces the height by 3 ft or so and consistent with the drop from a platform down to rail level.

    But then it looks like the ceiling continues at the same level until there is a further drop in height.

    So maybe we have a station where the running lines are at 2 different heights.

    And then I thought of Blackfriars Thameslink level. Are the through tracks down to Holborn at a lower level compared to the terminating platforms, in which case we might be looking west with an end turn to the south.

  7. Fantastic, I knew it was familiar. It’s actually Friary Passage.
    I live in Guildford and although I have passed by the entrance to it many times, I have only walked through it probably half a dozen times in the 30 odd years that I’ve lived here. It’s the passage way between Guildford Wharf by the River Wey and the pedestrianised Friary Street, clearly not under a railway as I’d assumed.
