    Visited with ConcreteJungle, this was a really photogenic drain.

    After dunking my camera a day or so before while draining with Bolts, I was very kindly lent CJ's trusty 1000d. After a luxury drive down in the new drain-mobile, we proceeded into the drain, eventually passing the stoopy section that he had previously explored up to, and on into the darkness. We saw lots of fish, including a decent sized pike and also an eel, but no sight of any bats.

    The culvert exits into an open section before heading underground once more, the foliage added a nice touch to the photography and age to the brickwork. The journey terminates where 2 smaller pipes flow down into a deep chamber, an overflow for the canal I believe. We spent a good few hours down here before heading off for the customary post-drain KFC.. Yet another awesome evening underground!

    Good shots man.

    I had a bit of a walk about topside as well, there's a few few interesting bits like the nearby dry docks that can drain into the culvert.

    Cheers all!

    Fighting to get a chunky backlog of reports up... I might have to visit the forum more often :D

    They're interesting features CJ, is that the control for the wooden penstock?

    To anyone who hasn't been, I would highly reccomend!


    Thanks! Lots of interesting side passages and colours down there

    Excellent report and photos!
    The range of colours in there are fantastic. I really must take a look at this drain myself - for some reason I have never got round to checking it out.
