At the location of our Tunnelview Historic Site there once existed a canal aqueduct and tunnel. The combination of the two features so close to one another was very unique. The tunnel still exists but is not accessible. The stones from the aqueduct were used in other bridges when it was removed. However, the foundation stones in the river bed can still be seen when the river level is low.

These bore holes were drilled into the Vintondale Mine pool to drain the mine pool to keep water from entering the basement of nearby homes. The height of the water varies with how much rain we have and how much water enters the mine pool below. Today on January 20, 2017 the height of the water was higher than normal.
You can view the bore holes from the highway bridge entering Vintondale at the Ghost Town Trail.
