Another canal tunnel related post, because I found one the other day whilst walking to the Museum Collection Centre. This tunnel is quite short – Google Earth says 0.1miles, but it probably isn’t even that. This tunnel takes the canal under the railway lines that run into New Street Station – the Cross City Line, the Lifford Line and another one that I don’t know the name of.
I accessed the north portal of the tunnel from Curzon Street, near the roundabout by PMT Music. There is a signpost that has been heavily vandalised, and a short stretch of canal, with locks. The tunnel is curved, and has lights!
