The danger of not doing your research properly
Some of you may recall an infamous blog post about a hitherto forgotten canal tunnel under Dudley Tunnel posted in early April 2013.
The item caused some amusement in the Birmingham Boating circles and there it has rested ever since - till yesterday.
Reports trickled in that accounts of wartime oil extraction under Dudley Tunnel had been unearthed and published in the Daily Mail, and the Chair of the BCNS was asked to comment. Fortunately Charley was familiar with my slightly strange sense of humour and was able to point the Daily Mail in the direction of the clues embedded in my blog post - see link.
Have look at the article and my original post! If its in the papers it must be true.....
