Urban Exploration - Cann Tunnel
This for me was one of my very first explores and its what really got me into urban exploring. Just walking through this tunnel knowing the history before hand i must admit gave me a rush ..
History of Cann Tunnel
The Cann tunnel was built in the early 1820's as part of the Plymouth & Dartmoor railway. It used to transport granite from the kings & swell tor quarries from the moor to Sutton pool, Plymouth. In 1916 all the track was removed During the second world war the Cann tunnel was reused and a contract was tendered to turn it into a deep shelter for 3000 essential dockyard workers. Evidence of beds and a sick bay still exist
