ABOUT THE ART
The Cheviot tunnel is a historic 660 foot long brick lined railway built in 1889. It is located in “The Valley of a Thousand Hills” where images of spectacular rolling lush green terrains.
It was constructed to enable passengers and timber logging to be transported from Yea to Molesworth, a distance of some 20kms.
The tunnel took 2 years to build and 2,000 employees involved in making the bricks on site from a clay deposit found nearby.
Sadly the tunnel was closed in 1937 when road trucks could haul the timber. The tunnel now stands as a historical piece of engineering in its era.
