Church Lawton to Harecastle Tunnel Southern Portal.

Harecastle Tunnel South

A pleasant run up through the Red Bull flight this morning, despite only one lock being in our favour, we arrived at the northern portal of Harecastle Tunnel at 7:30am, so plenty of time for a coffee and round of toast and marmalade. We waited for the 8 boats to come through from the other end, with the first boat coming out at 8:40am and the last boat appearing at 9:00am. It took us 45 minutes to get through, despite the fog in the tunnel, I couldn’t see no more than about 10ft in front, someone behind was making a lot of smoke. We have moored up at the southern portal, which so far has always been a nice deep water quiet mooring, saving the run through Stoke for our final early morning start this week for tomorrow morning.
