    Explored with Urban Caving

    On our way back from a weekend visiting @AuntieKnickers & @The Stig we decided to follow a few leads along the way. After a run of fails, we had this one on the last of the list. We were glad to find a stone mummy section inside, at least that served as a slight consolation for our journey of fails.
    But at least I got to test out my new 10-20mm, loved it :thumb

    a bit of paradise in a otherwise depressing part of the north east.

    Looks like a wreath has been laid on the safety fence, in the top right of the last pic? Are those some warning signs either side of it?

    The cards where male child themed and the lack of a grill on the culvert suggests to me that some lad was playing around above and fell in. And If they where playing in the drain I would think they would have been at the other end. So that was my conclusion too.

    Thanks for the replies, thought my eyes were failing me, but it seems you have noticed it also.

    Grim way to go, if a fall or drowning was involved, as the OP in the post above yours recalled the fence/grille was not there previously, something would have to have happened since his last visit, to warrant the Environment Agency, or local water board, putting up the fence/grille....a possible fall? Might be mentioned in online version of local rag?

    Cheers,
    PB
