Drainage tunnel mouth. Late C18/early C19. Squared stone. Round arch 2 metres
high and wide in taller wall, with large stepped buttress of tooled-and-margined

Although How Burn is now channelled through the tunnel, it would appear to have
been constructed as part of the drainage works of the former Howburn Colliery.
Included for historical interest.
