Spooky Narrowboat Journey through Harecastle Tunnel on the Trent & Mersey Canal

November 29, 2019

Join us as we take a spooky narrowboat journey through Harecastle Tunnel on the Trent & Mersey canal. Are the rumours about the Kidsgrove Boggart true? Can you spot the ghost of the Harecastle Tunnel? 👻 We start the day at Westport Lake, cruising the short distance to the south portal of Harecastle Tunnel. Colin takes a look at the history of both canal tunnels, the original, built by James Brindley, and the current tunnel, built by Thomas Telford, and investigates the giant fans used to clear the tunnel of fumes. Then we take narrowboat Silver Fox through Harecastle Tunnel!
