Gosty Hill Tunnel's ghost

This is the approach to the western portal of the Gosty Hill Tunnel on the Dudley No. 2 Canal,

It's 577yds long with no towpath and very low in places; requiring re-arrangement of our, not inconsiderable, wood stash on the roof before we continued.

This crazy picture shows a ghostly head with the caption, "Hawne Basin 1 mile". All the lights are from the tunnel light on the boat behind - I think some of the light is reflecting back off of our smoke.


  1. OMG! I hope I don't think about those pics when I go through Braunston Tunnel in a couple of months time!

  2. 'Tis a bit spooky - even the ribbon light has the profile of a long haired woman. Sorry we'll miss you this time. Take care, looks like we could have more ice on the way.
