    Whilst chasing up a couple of leads i thought it would be rude not to stop and have a look at a couple of the many culverts this part of the world has to offer, plus it's been a good while since i did anything underground. With the recent rain there was quite a flow in parts, that plus the slippy floor meant an early bath, but minus the skin on my knuckles and with a fcuked ankle i plodded on....literally, and to my joy found it was a bit of an ankle breaker in parts.

    This culvert carried the Alden brook under Helmshore in Lancashire approx 500m and is a really nice old stone construction typical of this area with a few little modern touches thrown in, decent height to so no stooping which was nice.

    Upon entering the Infall you are greeted with approx 6ft stone archwork

    A little further brings you to a modern short corrugated prefab section.

    Then a section with reinforced arches.

    This then opens into stone and a couple of small weirs.

    There's a few twists and turns plus a few unexpected deep bits.....

    Before straightening out and leading to the outfall....

    I didn't bother with the other section i was going to look at, this was enough hobbling for the day, i'll have to return at some point to check out some more around here.

    Cheers for looking.​
