Decided this evening to have a trip to Haslingden to look for some culverts.

The map said that there was 2 on Swinnel Brook.

I found Number 1 culvert not long after wading upriver.

This one was around 196Metres long

A mixture of designs (stone arch and stone with concrete roof).




I've named this first culvert "Twistier Blunders" :)

Around 50Metres upstream was another Culvert.

This took the Brook under St Crispin Way.

This Culvert was around 228Metres long.

A lovely stone arch section, then a straight backbreaking concrete part.

I ended up in a locked yard of a chemical place, so had to go back through to get out of the Brook :D


if this is to be named, i'll call it "Crispy Twains".
