    SOLICITOR, Preston

    Today I decided on a welcome break from drains in favour of some MILLS & INDUSTRY with Camera Shy..

    Pfft, that soon went out of the window and we ended up here..

    (Thanks to Scrappy for the info) :thumb

    Not sure who/when this was first discovered, but it's a little belter at just over half a mile long, and definately worthy of more attention

    PS, it was never a Solicitors, but an Accountants, these days it's some kind of Mosque for our asian friends

    Imagine their surprise when we wondered through their yard covered in crap

    Some lovely transitions from >Brick >Stone >Ironwork >RCP

    The upstream section is teaming with fish and other wildlife, downstream is a silted RCP full of floaters and stale arse soup!

    Sorry it's another drain, but I quite enjoyed it and really should have made more effort before now to go and see this

    Brick Arches, Stone Horshoe, Ironwork, RCP & Stale Turds over Derps anyday... :p:


    (Note the grille to the right, some serious gases emitting through a 2ft RCP) :eek:


    7ft Stone Horshoe & Manhole shaft under the main road


    Brick Egg wins everytime



    7ft RBP, Some hefty Calcite formations on this stretch




    Hooj RBP (reminds me of Manc shizzle does this) ;)


    ..With some age old Iron Work thrown in..


    Calcite takeover


    How do I a drain (Egg/RBP) you decide? :popcorn


    The downstream section was full of stale turds

    (Here a CSO dumps it's load through a giant pissflap further down this stretch of RCP)


    Beyond which, one of the top 10 features I have seen in a drain to-date

    (Gotta love the Brick Pr0n)


    Brick Arch


    Here the watercourse exits through a 7ft RCP ahead of the Brick chamber..

    We did travel down to the outfall, however it was silted up to fuck and kicking up some serious eggy smelling gases underfoot so no further pics before we opted to GTFO :D


    Thats all folks :)​
