The mystery of the missing canal tunnel at Alderbury in Wiltshire

This is fun. The Whitewicks ferret around at Alderbury Wharf, which is supposed to be as near Salisbury as the Salisbury and Southampton Canal ever got.

Was there an attempt to tunnel through the hill beyond the wharf, or did the builders begin digging a line to take the canal around the hill? Or both?
