Wikipedia has a page about Standedge Tunnel

The Standedge Tunnels are four parallel tunnels beneath the Pennines in northern England. Three are railway tunnels and the other is a canal tunnel. They are located at the Standedge (pronounced Stannige) crossing point between Marsden and Diggle, across the boundary between the West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester conurbations. Before boundary changes in 1974, both ends of the tunnel were in the West Riding of Yorkshire.

The canal tunnel is a key part of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal. Having been authorised by an Act of Parliament on 4 April 1794, construction work commenced on what was anticipated to be a 5,456-yard (4,989 m)-long tunnel only months thereafter. Within two years, several cost-saving measures were enacted which pushed back the envisioned completion date; work was also negatively impacted by the high levels of water encountered, which were much greater than had been expected. Amid this, it proved difficult to secure skilled help; some contract tenders went unanswered while figures like Benjamin Outram chose to withdraw from the venture. During 1807, the famed civil engineer Thomas Telford established a new detailed plan of work for the initiative; this was successfully and strictly followed throughout the rest of construction. During 1811, the tunnel finally opened; it is the longest and oldest of the four and is the longest and highest canal tunnel in the United Kingdom. Having been closed to all traffic in 1943, the canal tunnel was later re-opened during May 2001.

The first, single-track railway tunnel, built for the London and North Western Railway (LNWR) on their line between Huddersfield and Manchester, was completed during 1848. However, it quickly proved to have insufficient capacity and a second, parallel, single-track tunnel was opened during 1871. Finally, the LNWR opened a third, double-track tunnel nearby on 1894. All four of the tunnels are linked by a series cross-tunnels or adits located at strategic intervals, which had allowed the railway tunnels to be built quickly by reducing the need for construction shafts, and allowed for waste materials to be removed by boat. Of the railway tunnels, only the one double-track tunnel completed in 1894 is currently used for rail traffic; the others remain intact but are presently disused. The Standedge Tunnel Visitor Centre, at the Marsden end, serves as a base for boat trips into the tunnel, as well as host to an exhibition depicting the different crossings.
