Trent and Mersey Canal at Armitage, Staffordshire
Trent and Mersey Canal at Armitage, Staffordshire
The A513 road to Rugeley crosses the canal (bridge No 61A)where Armitage Tunnel used to start. The tunnel, which was about 120 metres in length, had its roof removed in 1971 because of subsidence damage being caused by nearby coal mining. What remains is a deep narrow cutting through sandstone, wide enough only for a single narrowboat to pass.
