Very neat, this outfalls into the Sherbourne, or am I wrong? Recall reading about, and seeing a pic like yours, on something about the sherbourne culvert in Coventry?

photographs 1 - 4 are of 2 random side pipes along the way,
the remaining are of 2 overflows all exiting in the sherbourne.

Thanks for the explanation Mr. K. That did occur to me but the water looked deeper than that and too murky to be transparent. Think I'll book an appointment just in case!

I can see where you are coming from because If they were real foot prints from an underground explorer then one foot would be dragging behind the other cos all drainers and underground bods always drag one leg behind the other when underground..its the law :D
Lol...thats a joke BTW ..specsavers it is :)

Wish I'd read all of your reply at once, I spent 3 hours practicing the underground walk to comply with the law. I'd just perfected it only to read that you were joking :(..... That was a joke too BTW :D
