Narrowboat emerging from Snarestone Tunnel, Leicestershire
Narrowboat emerging from Snarestone Tunnel, Leicestershire
This is the south portal of the tunnel.

Snarestone Tunnel is the only one on the (current) twenty-two mile Ashby Canal. The tunnel is about 229 metres (250 yards) in length and passes beneath the village, which is built on a ridge. The present publicly available terminus of the canal is about 500 metres beyond the tunnel end, but the eight miles beyond that have been or are being restored and should be open in the near future as far as Moira, where the original route stopped. The canal, which opened in 1804 never did reach Ashby-de-la-Zouch.
