“When we got there, and we’d seen that part of the side of the banking had caved in, you could see straight away that it was something that was man-made.The tunnel followed a public footpath along the Anghidi River towards Tintern Abbey, the 12th-Century abbey built by Cistern monks whose ruins are visited by thousands each year.
“It was almost as if the public footpath, people had been walking over it for ever how long that footpath had been there and no-one knew what they were walking on top of,” said Western Power Distribution way leave officer Luke Summers.
