THIS unusual photograph of Tunnel End is part of an exhibition to celebrate its 200th anniversary.
It was taken by self-taught photographer Mike Smith, of Quarmby.
Mike, who has won several competitions for his work, now has an exhibition of photographs taken in the Marsden area at Tunnel End.
It is the highest, deepest and longest canal tunnel in the whole of the UK.
The feat of engineering, finished in 1811, stretches over three miles through the hard millstone grit and under the Pennines from Marsden to Diggle.
Construction of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal was sanctioned by an Act of Parliament in 1794 and was finally finished after 17 years of hard labour.
The first boat went through the tunnel on December 10, 1810, before the tunnel was officially opened on April 4, 1811. When it finally opened to navigation, it became the third transPennine waterway after the Leeds and Liverpool and Rochdale canals.
