    A 1.7 mile culvert which forms the outflow for several sewers & surface runoff,
    discharging untreated sewerage in the trent during bad condition.
    The inflow is unknown but at 1.4 miles commences as a 4 ft brick arch, then a 6 ft brich arch with a concrete floor
    the sewer lies beneath the concrete floor.
    Halfway along theres an access chamber & air shaft with a surface brick tower,
    at some tumbling steps changes to a 12 ft brick arch, then a 12 ft elongated arch which continues to the trent.
    The outfall is an ornate brick arch with an information plaque,
    the culvert consists of 4 1/2 million bricks, red above & colliery black below, (yes somebody counted them all).
    Built by Footing & Barry opened in 1884.
    The culvert mouth is deep in parts

    4 ft culvert continues to infall or source

    they asked loads about the culvert inc it's length, construction, completion & use
    I said get yourself in, but they seemed abit weary.
