    I've had an itch that needed scratching for a while, that itch was to get back underground, i've not bothered doing any underground stuff for a while, a mixture of CBA and the thought of losing my new camera to some river of fresh means it's been derps only for a while.
    Anyway a day off meant it was time go introduce the new Nikon for the underground world, i love the old stone culverts running through these old cotton towns, so much character and usually lots of changes in shape, these both carry the Swinnel Brook water course.​


    These particular two were as far as i know first explored and named by Chewy waaaay back, an enjoyable wander they were too.


    "Crispy Twains"......

    I dropped in here at the infall, a nice arch approx 5 ft at most.

    A straight old stone arch section continued a while.

    Around the corner was stoopier section of concrete box.

    Changing back to Brick/Stone

    And a short section leading to the outfall.

    A little further down steam in the infall for another culverted section, access should of been simple, although somewhat blocked and a shortish 3 ft drop, as with most of the culverts like this it was slippy as fook leading to a less than dignified entry, luckily i'd packed my gear away and no harm done :thumb

    After a short section this opens into a lovely 6 ft stone arch

    There's a few twists along the way and it's deeper than i expected in places considering the lack of rain recently.

    Finally arriving at the outfall

    Cheers for looking :thumb
