    Hi The door you see is our emergency escape out of Singing Cavern the wired over well is just above Hurst cavern all can be seen from the 45 minute boat trip we organise from Todds End
    The other tunnel entrances are the main Dudley Canal Tunnel either at Shirts Mill basin or Castle Mill Basin
    Any other queries just let us know If you want a look I could meet you and show you round

    The boat trip is well worth it. Some of the caverns are spectacular and so atmospheric. Loads of history and always left me wandering what lay down the ones you couldn't get into. Vic Smallshire used to do a brilliant talk with slides of some of the parts you couldn't normally get to.
    Once did the tunnel by boat from Windmill End through to the main basin at Tipton end with Vic (who is sadly no longer with us). (We were piloting some students through as they did a charity trip legging and paddling through the tunnel)
    Good times!
