    Visited with Georgie and Will Knot, cheers guys and thank you :thumb

    The culvert was named by Georgie in 2011, in a nut shell it's the overflow system from Appleton reservoir, the culvert runs along side the reservoir then through a private garden then under another garden then back out in the form of a brook, it then runs next to Hough's lane for around quarter of a mile before disappearing in to thick foliage.

    Due to high water levels at the end of the culvert We only went in the first part, the first part is made from concrete sections then it changes into a Victorian tunnel that runs under hough's lane, I remember the concrete section being built when I was a youngster ( around 1987 ) previously it was a U shaped open top stream, I think they altered it due to the resivoir water having to get to a higher level to drain, hence why the newer culvert has a huge water tight gate to control the water levels to suit..


    Beautiful Appleton reservoir, and the start of the culvert.

    Here you can see a walkway (gated at both ends) behind the pictured spikes is the handle to open the water gate.

    A view from inside the culvert looking at the water gate, I'd no likey to be stood here if it opened :eek:

    A bit further back the culvert passes briefly under park lane. and You will see the water draining over the lowered concrete level on the left.

    Lastly the slippery slope along side a private garden, You'd need a rubber ring to do this bit :D

    As I mentioned We couldn't go in to the underground part due to the water levels, so a revisit will be must.

    Thanks for looking Telf :thumb
