Droitwich Barge Canal - inside the tunnel under the A449 road
The tunnel was a major engineering work, which went on for many months, and must have cost a great amount of money. Walkers can use the towpath through the tunnel to get under the A449. It is certainly much safer than attempting to dodge road traffic on the surface. Walking through the tunnel is a decidedly eerie experience. Not only is it fairly long and dark, but the surface of the walkway appears to be made of metal. As you walk on it, there is a clanging sound. It is easy to imagine there is someone following behind you, fortunately at about 7.30 a.m. in the morning there wasn't!
