    It has been a stonking hot day so the best way to stay cool was to head underground.

    The overflow is 200m long so not a big one but access without ropes and a harness isn't exactly easy.

    Once inside there are no real features, it's just a big arch leading away from the overflow infall to the outfall.

    Some rather picturesque shots there! :)

    Might have to pay this a visit next time I'm in the Peak District.

    Sadly Errwood hall was demolished due to the construction of that. There are also some obscure railway relics from when the Stockport Water Board used a tramway to construct it. I think it ran to where the gasworks used to be in Whaley Bridge, something to do with the C&HP railway. Nice shots.
