    Finally got round to having a look up that side pipe off Baleful Culvert (3rd pic in this report)

    Visited with King Mongoose

    Five foot concrete pipe with a tiny trickle in the bottom.

    Followed by a chamber. The lids were all concreted shut.

    [​IMG]


    More of the same

    [​IMG]


    And still more of the same. It suprised us how far up the taggers have been.
    After 25 minutes of this it turned to 4 foot plastic, slippery as a slippy thing, misty and tbh without a 4g or an Ojay I didn’t fancy it.
    I know it’s a CSO so there should be pooh up there somewhere, but not today. We baled…

    …and went down the right hand one of these.

    It’s a bit stoopy but I’m smaller, in fact, a lot smaller than KM.
    So how come I managed to t**t my head 9 times to his catching his back once?
    Any-who, headbanger it is.

    It starts as concrete walls with a more recent spraycrete roof.

    [​IMG]


    Then turns to brick walls, again with a more recent spraycrete roof.

    [​IMG]


    Amazing how much light comes through a closed lid when it’s pitch dark.

    [​IMG]


    This section had bolted steel plates for a roof - I think it runs through a factory yard / access.

    Round the corner on the left of this is the infall to Baleful and that steel weir.

    [​IMG]


    A couple of side pipes.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    This last one could be worth a look, but with knee-pads.

    A good way to spend 3 hours and wiith good company.

    No. We saw another hundred metres of misty stoop and just thought bollocks to that. KM might have one though.

    I generally wear a lid in stoopy drains as I'm a clumsy twit, it also has my head torch attached to it which is another excuse :p
