    This is a stunning culvert considering it just runs under a field

    I had a look at the infall first but that was a complete no go so I walked down to the 12x18ft brick outfall.

    Pretty much straight away the depth of the water fluctuates between a couple of inches and waist deep from one step to the next, combine that with how slippy all the rocks are and it's a recipe for disaster, quite a few times I thought I was going swimming but managed to stay upright.

    On with the pics

    Good to see shots of this place again PP!

    When I went a few years back there was the nasty remains of a dead ram where that coal is now.
