Canal Tunnels
Managed By: Icon Here The Watery Burrowers
Description:
Mankind has been endeavouring to discover methods of crossing natural obstructions for centuries. There are many tunnels, all vital to our infrastructure and they display some of the most marvellous feats of engineering.

This category seeks canal tunnels which are safely accessible and are of some interest. A canal is a manmade waterway which is navigable by transport and can carry boats shipping goods and people. The tunnel must have been/or be used by boats, not be a water only channel.
