    Dragged my dad underground to come and explore 3 of the 5 Culverts with me, been wanting to get down here for a while.

    The River Medlock comes down from the Strinesdale Reservoir into the first of five culverts. The highest one starts as a stone block arch around 7ft tall and travels underneath the water treatment works.

    The first entrance is a stoopy start but it gradually opens up into stone which takes you to the upper end of the culvert.

    After a short walk we arrived at the next culvert which drops down under the site of the former Orb Mil. Strengthening work occurred here for a new school being built above, they installed a layer of spraycrete covering the roof of the culvert. Pictures 1 and 2 are by my dad.

    We then went in the stretch that takes you under Majestic Mill, the culverts namesake. Majestic Mill is a Waterhead cotton mill that was built in 1903. and is still in use today. The culvert is very decrepid with old rusty metal beams.
