    Nice little revisit & good to show the guys who hadn't seen it before. I've always wondered when the pipe inside was fitted & interestingly enough, on this visit we found the date scrawled in the concrete encasing it, assumably by the guys who did the work, the date being 21st February, 1961. We also noticed a large void in the tunnel roof this time round, which looks like it had work done on it in the past. I'd be interested to know if any of the guys from here who have visited Cann have seen it & have any ideas.

    Here is the void, looks like the roof had work done on it.


    Sitting below the void is this

    This looks like one of the original tramway sleepers, almost 200 years old.
