I just thought I’d share this photo of mum, in a hard hat. We were about to go through the Standedge tunnel, on the Huddersfield Canal. We met up with my brother, and his family (that’s Ailsa, his wife, on the left) and spent some time around the canal. No doubt a pub lunch was involved too!
The tunnel opened in 1811 and is the longest and highest canal tunnel in the United Kingdom. Here’s a link to the Visitors Centre page.
As far as I can remember, the weather was sunny, but chilly, and the canal boat ride into the tunnel (requiring hard hats) was rather damp and not-terribly-enjoyable!
