Visit to Foulridge tunnel on the Leeds and Liverpool canal.
Sun 30 July 2006


A nice sunny day greeted us at Foulridge and we all set of for a wonderful trip through the tunnel and on to the next lock.

Our transport is ready.

The boat is equipped with most Mod-Cons.

One of the highlights of the return trip was a wonderful plate (or plates, in my case) of pie and peas.

Searchlights on the barge helped to illuminate the tunnel interior.

A light at the end of the tunnel.
