SJ6274 : Barnton Tunnel, west end

taken 27 years ago, near to Barnton, Cheshire, Great Britain

Barnton Tunnel, west end
Barnton Tunnel, west end
The parabolic arch characteristic of the early Trent & Mersey tunnels. Approached via an awkward bend - note damage caused by unsuccessful attempts to line the boat up with the tunnel. Stop planks under their shelter are just visible on the left, for blanking the tunnel off for maintenance. The tunnel portal is only just, or at least partly (the right hand side), in SJ6274.
