At the side of the A5 near Kilsby, this strange structure can be seen. There are no doors and no windows and it looks the same all the way round... The tunnel was built in 1834 as part of the London & Birmingham Railway. At the time, it was the longest tunnel for steam engines (2.2km) and needed lots of ventilation! There are two of these castellated shafts, both just over 18m in diameter. The one shown is right next to the A5, near Watford Gap. OS Grid Ref. SP 565714

What are these? I drive past them on the A5 near Kilsby / DIRFT on my way to Leicester. There's a few of them. They're just brick built keeps in grassy fields. This is the 'Mercedes view' of one of them - Tom was driving
