    The River Sherbourne runs within a large culvert from west to east for about 1.25 miles under Coventry.
    for the majority of the culvert it's a nice easy stroll with a bit of rubble at the infall.
    About a third of the way along the culvert is a brief open air section of about 20 metres.

    Good stuff!

    I remember doing this one a few years ago.
    Did you get attacked by the killer pigeons lurking up the side pipes?

    Loving this "man made canyon" pic. You have to wonder how this bit has survived as open stream.

    Nice one, the Telegraph did a centre page spread on Raddog and I's visit quite a few years ago, it was the biggest thing to happen in Coventry since the Snow on Cross Cheaping outrage!

    I do love that little bridge building, one of the few streets not gobbled up by the developers in the 50's.

    No smell of it, I think one of them leads up to Swanswell Park and that the other comes from the canal as an overflow

    I drove down the M6

    I didn't see anyone else down there but it's unusual to find other people just walking in culverts
