So, the daily post thing's now pie in the sky. Posts will arrive here as and when. Daily-ish. Weekly-ish. Random-ish.

630

An early consequence of a NIMBY attitude this; The Falkirk tunnel on the UnionCanal. Because the owners of the land and nearby Callendar House objected to the canal being visible to them, this 630 metre tunnel was dug through the hillside to hide it. A bit of a creepy cycle through it’s damp, dribbly and dark length (ooer), and a lot darker than this pic makes it look.

Impressive feat of engineering though.
