Two Harecastle Tunnels
Two Harecastle Tunnels
This is a view of two canal boats waiting to enter the Harecastle Tunnel. The current tunnel, built by Thomas Telford, can be seen to the left of the original James Brindley tunnel. The original tunnel was a severe bottleneck on the canal, hence the reason for the building of the second tunnel to overcome this problem. The original tunnel was closed due to subsidence early in the 20th century.
