DescriptionThe Hincaster Tunnel once took the Lancaster Canal towards the Sedgwick gunpowder works. The creation of the 378 yard tunnel was a large-scale building project, involving considerable time, labour and a specially created local brick-works. The tunnel opened for use on the 18th of June 1819. Drained in parts and eventually severed by the M6, the busy days of brick-making, building, and gunpowder filled barges are gone, like the hazy remains of a distant dream.
