NN9159 : Clunie Arch

taken 7 years ago, 3 km from Pitlochry, Perth And Kinross, Great Britain

Clunie Arch
Clunie Arch
Built in 1951, this straddles the approach road to Clunie power station and is an actual size cross-section of the 22 foot 6 inch horseshoe shaped Clunie Tunnel, which brings water 2 miles from Clunie Dam to the power station. This was the largest water-carrying tunnel in Britain at the time.
The Arch also serves as a memorial to tunnellers who died in a freak accident during the driving of the tunnel: A charge at the working face was exploded prematurely by lightning striking the hillside above.
