  • Chris Pearson says...
  • Harrop Edge lies above Diggle with its 4 tunnels (3 rail, 1 canal)through the Pennines to Marsden. The 1st built was the 1881 5 km canal tunnel, only wide enough for one narrowboat to save on cost.The boats had to be legged through the tunnel – boatmen lay on the cargo and pushed against the roof or walls of the tunnel with their legs which took three hours with a full load. Only the 1894 rail tunnel is still operational although all three rail tunnels are still maintained. The 1848 tunnel provides an emergency escape route for the other tunnels and has been made accessible to fire engines and ambulances.
