      The Godarville tunnel was a boatunnel and has a length of 1050 meters. 
       
      In order to overcome the enormous differences in height on the Charleroi-Brussels canal, many locks were built in the Samme valley between Ronquières and Seneffe and a 1267 m long tunnel was built :  La Bête tunnel.
      Soon there was a need for a canal with a larger capacity and between 1854 and 1857 the canal was enlarged for vessels up to 350 tons.
      The old tunnel, however, formed a bottleneck and so it was replaced by the new tunnel of Godarville. As a result, the number of locks was limited to 30. After the Second World War it was decided to make the canal navigable for ships up to 1350 tons.
      Since neither the Samme nor the tunnel of Godarville could make this enlargement, a new route had to be built between Ronquières and Godarville. . The tunnel is closed with large metal gates on both sides to keep the cold  out during the winter. On the south side, in the tunnel next to the canal, there is a towpath on which the horses towed the boats.
      Dimensions
      length: 1050 m
      width: 8 m
      maximum ship width: 5 m
      maximum draft: 2.1 m

      Hello everyone. I was refereed to join the forum from the Facebook group. Im from Ohio, USA and have followed urban exploring for a while. Recently I started getting out and doing it myself. I mainly film videos and post them on youtube but I also take pictures when I'm scouting new areas. I was out the other day scouting an area and took some pictures. I'm looking forward to going back.

      A revisit was in order with Obscurity,Fortknox0 and frosty and this time Space Invader joined us for a look around
      This is looking back along the Arp (tower hamlets tunnel) just before lagoon caves

      Section leading to the tower hamlets tunnel from the lagoon caves

      Now a few from in lagoon caves


      Toilet block at the end of the caves




      Back into the main tunnel looking towards the bricked wall just before the builders rubbish blockage

      Another toilet block in beaufoy’s caves



      Looking down just after the long crawl over broken shower doors and rotten wood

      Now sealed passage into the workshop area beyond this was obviously still in use

      That was that nice to visit the place again!!
