Galton Tunnel would not be recognised by the old canal builders as it’s a modern addition.  Arched concrete segments were placed over the canal before being covered by earth to form the base for a modern road scheme.

The tunnel hides what would have been a wonderful view of Galton Bridge which suddenly appears high above the canal as boats emerge from the far end of the tunnel.
