Dudley No.1 Canal Tunnel
Dudley No.1 Canal Tunnel
Completed in 1792, the Dudley No 1 Canal provided one link between the Stourbridge Canal & the Birmingham Main Line. The tunnel is 2888 metres long, extremely low and narrow, and contains a network of natural caverns, basins and branch lines, serving the old quarries and mines. There are believed to be some 4500 metres of waterways which were at one time connected inside the tunnel, some of which are still accessible. Picture taken from SO 93267 89233.
