Redcliffe Tunnel is 282 yards long and it's construction involved the demolition of a vicarage and the removal and re-internment of a graveyard at Arnos Vale cemetery.

The tunnel has been used for staging events and parties as well as filming and now sports a new doorway that allows large items to be transported inside.
