jonnytuna: I am archiving most of my geocaches as since recent events I feel that Geocaching is an inappropriate sport for Central London
any travel bugs will be put back into another cache

Geocache Description:

This cache, a magnetic key holder, is near the west entrance of the Islington Tunnel.

Regent's Canal was constructed in the early 1800s to link the Grand Junction Canal's Paddington Arm with the River Thames at Limehouse Basin in the Docklands. This cache is near the west entrance of the Islington Tunnel, 3/4 mile long (878 m), which began use in 1820. Since it had no towpath, barges had to be "legged" through the entire length. Six years later, in 1826, a steam tug was introduced, which worked by pulling itself along a chain on the canal bed. The tug was in operation until the 1930s. Today, self-powered long boats traverse the tunnel, and only the narrow ones can pass in opposite directions while in the tunnel.This section of the canal, near Muriel Street, is open after dark on a trial basis, so the cache is accessible at any time. It is quite busy even at night, so be aware of muggles as you pursue the cache. The cache contains a log only, so bring a pen or pencil. After you locate the cache, please return it to the same location so that it is protected from the elements and hidden from the casual observer.
