    Overdressed

    Visited with @TunnelMon who kindly lent me a pair of waders and a torch :thumb
    This was my first time draining and it certainly didn't disappoint, entering from the outfall we headed upstream with the intent of getting to the infall, then heading back to take pics. I didn't have a clue how to do anything with my camera so a big thanks to TM for helping me out :)

    [​IMG]
    The first section of the culvert was a plain concrete box, nothing much of interest on the way

    [​IMG]
    We then entered this concrete chamber complete with cobbled floor

    [​IMG]
    Shortly after we entered this chamber, the two angled walls are to channel the water

    [​IMG]
    TunnelMon kindly showing the change from concrete to brick :p

    [​IMG]
    This next brick section seemed to go on forever and my back was killing me

    [​IMG]
    Dropping down a small weir quickly brought us to this much larger tunnel

    [​IMG]
    And straight into this old storm overflow chamber

    [​IMG]
    On the other side of the chamber was this rather interesting sluice gate, it was a tight squeeze

    [​IMG]

    We then had a long, stoopy walk back to the outfall - under 1M at the worst points. Past this stonework was a section of RCP with a rather nice manhole, before it went back to stonework until it reached the outfall. We figured that we could probably build a car with all the bits and pieces under here!
    Upon exiting we were greeted by a rather angry woman telling us she was going to call the police :D it was so shocking that TunnelMon dunked his camera...

    Thanks for looking :thumb

    Awesome report man, it was a laugh!

    We'll have to find something less stoopy for next time :D

    Hopefully the camera will survive, was bound to happen at some point
