Brandwood Tunnel, Stratford upon Avon Canal
Brandwood Tunnel, Stratford upon Avon Canal
The eastern portal of this tunnel is hidden away in a cutting and is reached by a track from Brandwood End. The track was formerly the route by which towing horses were led over the top.

The tunnel is 325 metres/ 352 yards long and took its name from the Brandwood Estate. Note the elaborate trimmings to the portal. The niches on either side were presumably originally intended to house ornamental figures or objects.
