GUC Blisworth Tunnel

It was quite a blistery Sunday morning and we soon reached Gayton Junction and carried straight on towards Blisworth and its tunnel. Since we had been passing oncoming boats several times already, its not surprising we did the same inside the tunnel. This was the first time through Blisworth tunnel for me, but not the first time I’ve passed boats inside a tunnel. Blisworth is now the longest canal tunnel I’ve been through so far – a couple of hundred yards longer than Harecastle that I’ve traversed several times when the boat was based at Etruria. Its a fairly wet tunnel with waterfalls coming down the ventilation shafts. Once out we decided to moor for lunch at a nearby pub.
