Entrance to Clifton Hall Tunnel. Clifton Hall Tunnel, also called (locally) the Black Harry Tunnel, was a railway tunnel passing beneath much of Swinton and Pendlebury, in Greater Manchester, England which partly collapsed on 28 April 1953 killing five occupants of houses in Temple Drive, Swinton which had been built above the tunnel many years earlier. The tunnel was on the Patricroft and Clifton branch of the London and North Western Railway line linking Patricroft with Molyneux Junction.[1] The line provided a strategically important link to Radcliffe via the Clifton Viaduct (known locally as "the 13 arches"), which has since been granted Listed status and therefore still stands across the Irwell Valley next to the M60 motorway. The tunnel collapsed at a point directly beneath an old brick-lined construction shaft, the contents of which fell into the space below. The surrounding soil, which was a loose mixture of sand and clay, poured into the hole and formed a large cavity underneath the foundations of two houses on Temple Drive. The houses, (numbers 22 and 24) suddenly collapsed into the ground killing five occupants and the end wall of another (number 26) fell outwards though the occupants of this house were rescued.

Most of this area of farmland in 1932 is now covered with housing on both sides of the road. Strange how many times a new road is built only to be surrounded by housing, so increasing the traffic on the road and making it difficult to increase the road capacity by widening. Indeed in the middle left of the picture it would appear new houses are being built facing the road before it is finished. It would appear the today that the road has encroached on their front gardens as widening has increased the number of lanes and pushed the service roads further out towards the houses. The 1928 picture of the Kingston Bypass in south-west London EPW020673 also illustrates the point well. Today much of the surrounding area is built up the now six-lane bypass being edged with narrow service roads that only provide limited access to the truck route. The noise and population levels for those living close to such main routes was clearly not a consideration for the early planners.
