    These pictures are from two visits as I wasn't 100% happy with a few of my pics from the first visit.

    I also feel I should apologise to the two cars full of people that drove past as I was stood in just my boxers at the side of the car, I didn't have waders with me and got very wet getting to the ladder, my wife would have killed me if I had soaked the drivers seat so stripping was the only option. I know you saw my camera on the tripod and me wearing just my boxers in a car park on a country lane but it wasn't as dodgy as it looked.

    Cracking shot, interesting looking jumble of brick and metal.
    Do you think the metal brackets in the last few photos were for surveying or flow control?

    I can't imagine they would do much as flow control, I was wondering if they were a way of oxygenating the water

    Nice one!
    I visited this in July 2009 but can't find the report now - which makes me wonder if I ever posted it.
    Back then those shiny brackets weren't installed.

    They appear to have an obtuse angle to them, so something for a specific purpose. Not your normal off the shelf Alu' angle.

    The brackets are to stop skateboarders and bodyboarders using the tunnel for fun, makes carving up the pipes impossible. You need to take a couple of charged makitas on a dry day to even entertain having a little session ;)
