A light in the mid­dle of the tun­nel?

Canal Boat - - News -

A LIT­TLE MORE light is to be shed on the in­te­rior of Falkirk Tun­nel on Scot­land’s Union Canal thanks to a project by Scot­tish Canals to ‘light up the re­cesses’ of the 630-me­tre bore.

As shown in our long-ex­po­sure picture, there are al­ready lights to guide tow­path walk­ers, but the ex­tra il­lu­mi­na­tion planned will give them a bet­ter view of its par­tially un­lined con­struc­tion and colour­ful rock strata.

Not only that, but Scot­tish Canals hopes to stage the­atri­cal per­for­mances, in­clud­ing grisly Hal­lowe’en events linked to the no­to­ri­ous 19th Cen­tury Ed­in­burgh mur­der­ers Burke and Hare, who worked as navvies on the canal.
