As per subject! I'm travelling along this corridor tomorrow, and am looking for somewhere mine, geological, or industrial archaeology to visit. The only thing I've come up with so far is Charnwood Forest, for a look at the quarries. Anywhere else for me to consider ?

Canal tunnels? Blisworth, Braunston, Dudley, Netherton, Wast Hill and others. Netherton has towpaths so you could walk through it..... IP: 154.59.156.59 Edited: 26/07/2019 12:38:02 by Pete Monkhouse
