SD5175 : Northern end of the culvert under the M6

taken 1 month ago, near to Yealand Conyers, Lancashire, England

Northern end of the culvert under the M6
Northern end of the culvert under the M6
At this point the northern reaches of the Lancaster Canal were severed by the construction of the M6 in 1965. Steps lead down to the culvert carrying the canal water under the embankment. A 25-year old plan to open up the canal again by tunnelling under the motorway a short way to the north has come to nothing.
