which side of ther canal,are you talking about Tencher, if its the pilks side then what you describe might be
part of the old smelting set up for the glass House part of the flue system it wasa brick lined tunnel that allowed the air to get into the glass smelter to boost the heat to 1700 degrees to melt the metal(Glass ) , the culvert i`m talking about is on the towpath side of the hotties and runns parallel to the hotties till it goes under the canal at the big bend
