Whitehurst Tunnel south-east of Froncysyllte, Wrexham
Whitehurst Tunnel south-east of Froncysyllte, Wrexham
This image shows the north portal.

The tunnel, which has a towpath all through it, is wide enough for one boat only, and is 191 yards (about 175 metres) long.

Since the 1960s, there appear to be a lot of references to this as Whitehouse Tunnel and sometimes Whitehouses Tunnel. Maybe someone local can send me some information about this.
