    Hayfield

    After posting the lead a couple of days ago I had the opportunity to head over to Hayfield to check it out.

    Parking in the centre of the town I got a few odd looks putting the wellys on :p
    I had marked the spots on gmaps app on my phone and headed off for the first culvert

    Rather than go up the stream I decided to start on the other side of town and follow the flow of the stream

    First off was the nice little subway which is in no way urbex related but I like the pic :p

    The first culvert was a short stoopy affair but I wasn't going to let that put me off as I knew there was better ahead

    Then it was onto the main reason I was there :D

    The silt was deep and pretty soon I was thigh deep in the wet stuff with fish jumping around my feet and spiders hanging above my head, I didn't get many pics as I spent the next half an hour trying to keep my camera dry and avoid the eight legged beasts

    I emerged across town near the car park

    Driving home I spotted a stream heading under the road so I decided to have a look.

    The culvert was so much more than I expected :)

    heading in the arch revealed a brick culvert that opened into a large chamber

    I didn't have much light on me and didn't get any pics of the chamber or the 10 foot underground waterfall :(

    The exit
