Canada Tunnels & Manor Farm

Wonder if anyone can tell me where Canada Tunnels were. My Grandads unit were based a few miles west of Ypres in early January 1918, then on the 14th according to the war diary moved by train to Manor Farm and into the support line. The next day they were helping pump out the tunnels which had flooded after overnight rain. I assume the tunnels mentioned are mining works under the enemy lines. Were they in the Ypres area, or further away. Any help much appreciated.

Manor Farm was just south of the eastern end of Zillebeke lake and Canada Street Tunnels were about 2 miles further east south east on Mt Sorrel. They were next to Hedge Street tunnels which gets mentioned in Edmund Blunden's Undertones of War
