User contributed information about Blisworth Tunnel North End
Rings, hard piled edge and a car park above this ex-landing stage made it a good place for us. Remote and very shady being deep in the cutting. We were surprised when Nick suggested this as an overnight stop in the canal planner but it is actually not a bad place as long as you don't need a store or a pub.
