    This Culvert takes the Gore brook round and over Gorton Reservoir.

    We started at the upstream end and went a bit further upstream. There were some new looking sections from recent building works.

    We turned round at this point as took so long wandering down, but will return to see the larger falls downstream. Was a really nice culvert with lovely brickwork, especially at the confluences. Good if your ever up for a wander in the jungle!
