New tourist tunnel opened at Somerset attraction

Visitors to limestone cave attraction Wookey Hole will get to see caverns seen by just a few before after a new tunnel was opened this week.

Wookey Hole has said that 3t of explosives were used by geotechnical contractor Matt Durbin Associates  and explosives engineers Demrock to move more then 1,000t to create the 70m long tunnel.

The tunnel links the new caverns - previously only accessible by divers - to the main tour routes.

According to Wookey Hole, this is an exciting development as more people have walked on the moon than have viewed the caverns until now.
