    History


    Following Joseph Bazalgette's achievements with London's sewer systems, Nottingham realised that they needed one themselves. One part of this was the Beck Valley Culvert. It carries water, and a few CSOs, for a few miles under the eastern part of the city. Built in 1883/84 by Footing and Barry Contractors, it is almost entirely brick.

    While I was looking forward to spending some quality time with my xbox, I received a message from UC, "Fancy trying Beck Valley tonight"
    "Ow, ow, your twisting my arm"
    Two hours later we were parked close to the outfall, putting our waders on.
    After a brief conversation with a runner, and a panic when my waders breached, just when I remembered that my mobile was still in my pocket. We were in.
    And boy was she gorgeous.

    This is an awesome drain that sees very few visitors.
    I remember it being very deep for the first 100m or so but worth it for the huge quantity of two tone brickwork!
