    Discovered with @Pom

    Recently, myself and Pom have found a lot of spare time on our hands. Over the last few months, I have been focussing my efforts on Nottingham, and we thought we'd start with the easier stuff, as they were first on the map.
    This is on the River Leen, which eventually flows into the Trent through two flap-like flood gates(hence the name). You can't walk right through to the gates as there is a sump.
    The water is 3ft deep in places, and it was here I discovered my waders weren't watertight.

    It was a nice little drain to look at.

    The sump dissapearing, a word of warning for those who venture... the sump drops in at the last ladder, Its slippy and strong currents, it will take you in if you fuck around here.

    Another of these sump outfalls, Manc only has one or maybe two that I can think of, Gorton falls is one, a definite slide of doom. Seems they are more common in MK/East mids?

    The sump is a slippy slope. Would be very easy to fall into it if your not paying attention
