SP9312 : Grand Union Canal Tring Summit Cutting

taken 9 years ago, near to New Mill, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

Grand Union Canal  Tring Summit Cutting
Grand Union Canal Tring Summit Cutting
View North West from Bridge 134 (Marshcroft Lane). The cutting is 1 miles long and was dug at the end of the 18th century to a maximum depth of 30 feet. However the actual depth is greater because the excavated material was left in banks on either side.
Compare this picture with SP9312 : Narrowboat travelling north west along the Tring Summit cutting to see the extent that the canal is hidden from view by the foliage in summer.
