    Arachnophobia - Visited by Ojay & Morse.

    This is another section of the Gore Brook, which is culverted at the other end of Platt Field park.

    The weather was decent and I hadn't yet looked at this one, and Morse was itching to play around with his new camera so off we went.

    The infall is somewhat overgrown with ivy, but is rather cool looking all the same.

    Looking upstream

    Not long in we are walking up a long box section of brick and concrete

    There are some seriously mean looking spiders in this place, hence the name.
    And I mean if you have a fear of them it aint for you, although Gone managed to get down here a while back

    One of many manholes on the way

    Eventually it bends off to the left before straightening up again.

    After about 100 yards the roof section appears to be strengthened under the road with a cool looking steel structure complete with brick arches

    Again it bends to the left

    [​IMG]

    Before straightening up once again where it eventually joins this concrete box section

    On the way we passed this overflow on the left, not sure if it's a surface drain or a CSO?

    [​IMG]

    Anyway I headed up the RCP for a quick mooch, but decided to turn back as it looked like a shrinker

    [​IMG]

    Eventually the outfall was in sight

    [​IMG]

    The water levels seemed to be deeper at this point and was also silted up with more crap, eventually we arrived at the outfall
