Blocked tunnel under Whitlingham Lane
The tunnel face adjoins a drainage ditch which separates a flood meadow beside the river from Whitlingham Lane. The lane passes immediately above the structure, the roadside hedge can be seen slightly behind the top of the brick wall.

The following information comes from the Trowse Community website: "Though it is hard to believe now, the water level earlier this century was such that the wherries were able to come right up the river to fetch lime from the pit where the Ski Club > LinkExternal link now stands. It was wheeled to them in bogeys through a tunnel running under Whitlingham Lane."
