Aberford on YouTube

It seems that just about everything you could think of is on YouTube and now Aberford is there as well.

The video is a glimpse into the tunnel along the old fly line in Parlington estate. If you want to see it youself then it's about half a mile up the dirt road opposite Lotherton Lane.

Dark Arch video link

This video originates from http://www.parlington.com, which has a number of other interesting videos of Parlington Hall and the surrounding area.
