    First 'explored' by none other than Bnugle over 5 years ago, he had this to say...

    He wasn't wrong, and since that profound statement he has since retired :D

    CJ kicked it back out there more recently and named it after the nearby ale house which was more than welcoming at the end of it all


    Essentially a 2 bore concrete box which carries the River Beal underneath the M62 and nearby carriageway for just over 500m

    I've been for a poke down here before with SL but never bothered with any pics, so at a loose end today and practically on my doorstep I headed back for a few snaps

    The upstream section is by far the most interesting bit as two weirs pass behind Ellenroad Engine House Steam Museum

    Getting in and out is fun also; stung to death by nettles and ripped to shreds by Mr Bramble u/s, still I managed a suntan in drains :crazy but true

    At the end of it all a quick traverse across a low bridge and a stride to the local for a cold one :thumb


    The River winds downstream behind the the Engine House and drops two weirs ahead of the infall via a twin concrete box

    If you take stock, you will notice two smaller penstocks, one of which is/was designed to divert flow from the nearby engine house

    Heading downstream a short open section exits via another twin concrete box ahead of a 4ft weir

    A small watercourse joins on the left

    (looking u/s)

    The final section is a further 6ft box carrying the river downstream

    Eventually daylight can be seen at the outfall, beyond which an original stone bridge which now serves the nearby Metrolink

    All in all a decent Sunday stroll and finally good to get back down here after all these years
