A 1.7 mile culvert which forms the outflow for several sewers & surface runoff,
discharging untreated sewerage in the trent during bad condition.
The inflow is unknown but at 1.4 miles commences as a 4 ft brick arch, then a 6 ft brich arch with a concrete floor
the sewer lies beneath the concrete floor.
Halfway along theres an access chamber & air shaft with a surface brick tower,
at some tumbling steps changes to a 12 ft brick arch, then a 12 ft elongated arch which continues to the trent.
The outfall is an ornate brick arch with an information plaque,
the culvert consists of 4 1/2 million bricks, red above & colliery black below, (yes somebody counted them all).
Built by Footing & Barry opened in 1884.
The culvert mouth is deep in parts

4 ft culvert continues to infall or source
