    Masticator is the culverted section of the Meanwood Beck on its journey through Leeds city to its confluence with the River Aire.
    I explored this drain with ConcreteJungle. Check out his blog here!
    Along the way, the construction styles, materials and size of this drain change many times.
    Towards the downstream end is a CSO chamber containing an Archimedes' screw which is used as a debris screen for a sewer which runs parallel to the Beck.
    This, I believe, is where the name of this drain originates.
    Anyway, on with the pics...
