Leaving Beaune a short sharp climb over to the Ouche valley.
Then north along the Burgundy canal.
Pouilly en Auxois
As the sign says, the tunnel is 3km long, and was built 1826 -1832.
The electric tug
is a bit like a tram with a pantograph. It towed barges through the tunnel. It operated 1893 - 1987.
We never heard if the horse got out of the canal OK.
