58ft Harecastle – Semi-Trad Narrow Boat

Until the opening of the Standedge Tunnel over the Pennines the Harecastle, was the longest navigable tunnel on the canal system. It still holds its own fascination as one of the wonders of the waterways. Although there were two tunnels, the first by James Brindley, it is Thomas Telford's Tunnel that you now cruise today, and it still remains as another tribute to this amazing Scottish engineer's talents. Tales of ghosts used to abound amongst the old working boatmen who plied their trade along this stretch of canal. However, the only ghostly sounds you are likely to hear today are made by the voices of the crews of the many boats that echo their way through the darkness.
