Arlingham Tunnel 1810

It is a well known fact  that in 1810 work commenced on the construction of a tramway tunnel from Bullo to Arlingham and was abandoned in 1813 when the workings were flooded.  Disappointingly all of the internet sites are almost verbatim of one another. The purpose of the venture was to provide a regular supply of coal from the forest pits to the mills along the Stroud valley.
