I am interested to learn the name Barehead Tunnel. If it is the same one, I just know it as the tunnel footpath through the judd wall near Corporal Lane at Upper Shibden. We (at Halifax Scientific Society) had a walk planned to it on the Saturday when it snowed, so the walk never happened, but it is re-scheduled for later in the year, Bruce Hoyle, our spider specialist, is leading.

The path that leads off corpral lane is called bare Head lane which leads to the tunnel.The whole area is called bare head.
