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.

Sorry I had to ask I live near this area and I'm ashamed to say I've never seen this :)

This one is my fav... looks more like a natural cave than a man made tunnel. Beautiful work.

It is a lovely and interesting place. HUGE spiders in there though, and bats.

Not necessarily spiders and bats can bite too, they're more real than vampires. :D

I love the lighting! It really brings out the textures of the ceiling, and the slight difference in colours is very cool

This is excellent. I love the lighting and the way it highlights all the textures in the tunnel!
