An unusual feature of this canal, and one missed by most visitors, is this horse tunnel that passes under the canal half way between Lock 30w and Ward Lane bridge. Its purpose is not known. It may have provided access to stables at Wrigley Mill, which stood on the hillside below the canal, and to which the path originally led.
Horse tunnel entrance on towpath side. In Summer, when the vegetation has grown up, it can be difficult to spot.
Approaching Ward Lane bridge, with Lock 31w behind and the bulk of Standedge looming beyond.
