Foulridge tunnel is the longest of the tunnels we go through, nearly a mile long but you can see right through it. The tunnel was built two thirds cut and cover due to the difficult ground and there are no records of anyone being killed in its building, which is quite amazing. Having no tow path and only being as wide as we are traffic lights control the flow of boats through it. Guests love going through as its all twinkly. As with all tunnels there is the inevitable story of a cow swimming through it.
Here we are waiting to go through, no we can’t go through
with people sitting out!
