Notes about this historic site

1 There is a short tunnel on the Birmingham and Fazeley canal just north of Curdworth joined to an embankment to the NE. The tunnel is short, possibly 75 yards long and in good condition. The towpath goes inside the tunnel and is paved with ridged red brick possibly original. The red brick portals are in good condition.
