Buttonhole is a storm overflow system from a brook on the outskirts of Leicester which eventually heads into the river soar. Built at some point in the late 50s/early 60s based upon some of the tags that are down there. It is mostly around 2.2M diameter RCP and runs for around a mile. There are no features to speak of but certainly one of my most exciting finds in Leicester.

This was explored with my friend Buttons, due to its relatively boring nature I have only put 5 photos here :)
