Foulridge: The "Mile Tunnel".

Foulridge: The "Mile Tunnel".
The Northern entrance to the Foulridge tunnel on the Leeds-Liverpool canal which is known locally as "The mile tunnel" because it is one mile long and dead-straight. There are "traffic lights" at each end as it is only wide enough for one boat at a time. There is a well-known (true) local story of a cow named Buttercup which fell into the canal at one end of the tunnel in 1912, swam through and was rescued at the other end. Apparently it was "revived" with drinks of brandy from a nearby pub. Photographed with a Sony RX100 compact camera and processed with Nikon Capture NX2.
