A TALK on the history of the Butterley Tunnel is to be given by Tina Cordon.

The talk is part of a social evening, hosted by The Friends of the Cromford Canal, on Monday, June 20, at Ironville Church Hall, starting at 7.30pm.

The tunnel, which was built in 1794 and is one-and-three-quarter miles long, is a famous land mark on the Cromford Canal.
