Trail Tunnels

The stone work on structures along the Trail is one of the outstanding features and is an important part of the experience.  Tunnels were brick lined for stability, a wooden framework was used form the curve of the tunnels and to hold bricks in place while the mortar set.

Bring your torch and go slowly through the tunnels to admire what would have been a huge challenge for the men working on the tunnels - take the time to walk the short track to the tunnellers camp beside the Poolburn Tunnel.
