Canoeists use tunnels already

Published: Friday, 23 June 2017

There is nothing new about canoeists using tunnels, as they have been using them for years, with meeting them in Coseley Tunnel on the Wolverhampton Level, the first time about three years ago and again this year.

I expect with the canal being so little used they can have free rein, and luckily when they saw my boat approaching both times they scampered back, as I could by then clearly see them in the light from the exit of the tunnel.

If they had kept coming however, it would have been a different story as I just did not see them until they were on their way out.
