Summary[edit]

Description
English: This set of clips gives a brief glimpse into the subterranean world of Leeds city railway station. These grandiose Victorian engineering tunnels, known locally as "The Dark Arches", were built in the 1800s to secretly channel the River Aire underneath passenger platforms and railway lines which lie high above.

The video was shot with a Canon 7D at a framerate of 25fps, using a 35mm f/1.4L lens. The resolution was 1080p but its quality has been downscaled to 720p in this file. Original copies can be obtained if interested parties contact the author via www.tjblackwell.co.uk.

An in-depth explanation of this video's context is found via the Wikipedia article on Granary Wharf, which reads as such: "In 1864 it was proposed to build "New Station" in Leeds. Construction began in 1866 and the station was completed in 1869. The new station was built on arches which span the River Aire, Neville Street and Swinegate. The building of the station led to the creation of the 'Dark Arches' over Neville Street. Over 18 million bricks were used during their construction, breaking records at the time. Although the arches appear to be part of one single structure, closer inspection reveals that it is a series of independent viaducts two or four tracks wide. The station is situated next to the terminus of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, but as the station is raised high above ground level it is possible to gain access to the Dark Arches from the towpath."
