Greywell Tunnel, Eastern Portal
Greywell Tunnel, Eastern Portal
Brick-lined tunnel about 3/4 mile long which passes beneath Greywell Hill. It was built in 1792 but is no longer navigable due to a 1872 roof collapse. The tunnel was built as a landowner refused permission for the Basingstoke Canal to cross his land. There is no towpath in the old tunnel so the bargees had to "leg it".
