Listing Text

Tunnel entrance and
lining set in bank
at north-east end of
Laughton Pond
Tunnel entrance and lining. Probably medieval flanked by walls partly c1775.
Magnesian limestone ashlar and in irregular blocks. Pointed-arched opening
with voussoirs rising from chamfered plinth. Coursed walling above runs out
into irregular blocks set as a retaining wall. Tunnel continues several
metres into the bank wall below water level of Laughton Pond, its other end
is not visible. A channel from the tunnel links to the river flowing through
Roche Abbey (Scheduled Ancient Monument). Probably adapted as a landscape
feature of Roche Abbey in the scheme carried out between 1774 and 1777 by
Lancelot 'Capability' Brown for Lord Scarbrough.
