The Falkirk Tunnel and Canal by BusterBrownBB The Falkirk Tunnel and Canal by BusterBrownBB
The Falkirk Tunnel. The Union Canal goes underground as it leaves Falkirk, passing through the Falkirk Tunnel - a staggering 633m long! In 1821 engineers cut a 690 yard tunnel under Prospect Hill. This involved blasting and digging through solid rock, and the 'dark tunnel' as it is known remains a marvel even in this high technology age.

Unusual. I suppose the tow-path avoids the more frequent need for legging through a tunnel? Luxury!

That is a long tunnel. It would cost a scary amount of money to build something like it now!

I think if they built it now, they'd likely make a machine to do it for them.

That's true, like the one they used for the Channel Tunnel. That's an even longer tunnel!
