    This culvert literally fell out of Google one day, and has been on the To Do list for a long time. After our trip to see the laughing cavalier of Edinburgh, the road home went virtually past this place so a detour was called for and the culvert was christened.

    This drain is really old in parts and has been rebuilt a couple of times, it starts off high but gets a bit stoopy, it's full of fish and not too fresh. All side pipes we saw were too small for exploration but there is "Parrallel Universe" a break through into another concrete box section near the upstream end which we didn't explore other than poke our heads into...

    Breaking my tripod on the way in, these pics suffered from me having to rest the camera on the broken remains.

    Also note to self, Aldi PVC chest waders are a bad idea in 25 degree heat :eek:


    Today, looking into the old partfrom the new concrete section being built in the old photo:


    Looking Back:

    Lots of changes in construction




    We've explored the foundry this was cast in:

    Drain Football. Everytime!

    The name was already chosen, but seeing Cavalier Carpets just made it even more right! Fortunately the dog was gone.
