HISTORIANS, archeologists, geologists and the simply curious flocked to the rediscovered tunnel at Country Road, St Michael, yesterday, marvelling at its inner beauty.
The arched tunnel lined with red brick and coral stone, was uncovered on Wednesday on the property of Hazel Barnes, during excavation by workmen attached to the Ministry of Housing.
An engineer from that ministry and officials from the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources also visited the area yesterday to explore the underground wonder. They are expected to file reports.
Barnes, who has lived on the spot for 32 years, is now looking into the possibility of preserving the tunnel, which several elderly residents said was used as a walkway to nearby Country Road, Whitepark Road and Bank Hall.  (MB)
