    Discovered with @Lost Explorer, @Miss Mayhem & @UrbanCaving

    History

    This was part of the drainage system for Asfordby 'Super pit', which closed in the late 90's due to constant flooding. It comes away from screening tanks and a settling pool, that allowed the coal dust to be removed from the water before it enters Welby Brook.

    This was a nice end to a day of exploring around east Leicestershire. Great to see @Lost Explorer enjoy a drain, we're gradually turning him to the darkside :p This was a bit stoopy, about 5ft RCP, and it had a steep gradient to it on it's way to the brook. It seemed to wind quite a lot, but I don't think is reflected in the images. It was very warm and misty tin there, we were sweating our bollocks (and tits) off when we got out.

    I gotta admit...the code name is what lured me in. Did you give it it's name or was it already christened?
