    Was out doing a recce on something else when I stumbled upon this beautiful little drain , when I say stumbled I really did whilst taking this shot...

    After wringing my sock out , my curiousness got the better of me..

    Blocks are usually a good sign that there is more inside..

    I could hear water falling both in front of me and behind :confused

    The grids seemed to let a fair do of light in so it was never really dark..

    The noise in front was getting daunting...

    I could just make out the falls through the dark..

    For such a small amount of water the noise was thunderous..

    It would/will be good to go back when there is a bit more water..

    When I saw all these twigs I thought there would be some gigantic bird kicking around somewhere but they had been deposited there by a design fault...

    Up another level..

    I wish all manhole lids were plywood (how cool would that be ?)

    The tell tale smell of fresh air was telling me the end was close by..

    IMG_5938.jpg

    Arhh there it is..

    IMG_5916.jpg

    The last falls were still echoing from behind me..

    Another little waterfall to finish with , I know this sounds like a step by step walk up a poxy little drain but hey if you have never done a drain before this is the the chap for you , features , no lids (yet) and the atmosphere of a real drain , plus no sewer fresh in sight , in fact I believe you would be able to drink the water and the best bit is its not quite underground yet , so its a perfect learner drain :)

    Echo falls was built by Russel Construction in 2009 to replace an old river course that had become undermined and unsafe and is destined to become a must for would be drainers
