I've seen this inviting outfall on google maps for the best part of 8 months now and i have finally decided to do it. I thought i'd be the first but i am not, but still this is an interesting culvert and not far from home. Sorry once again for the poor light quality in the picture's. I will be investing in a new torch soon.

I don't know much about this other than it's the Chaddeston culvert, i explored the final cuverted section that leads into the Derwent River.

Looking out from the outfall.

Looking in the outfall:

Interesting side bits, i thought they would make it easier to walk along the culvert than splashing in the water but they slowly raised up and walking became crouching =/

Looking back toward the outfall

The only interesting bit of this section of culvert, a box section and steps.

(Obligatory light painting)

I got a bit 'arty' here.


From the box section the culvert turned to a corrugated iron affair complete with bolts sticking up from the floor, pain and falling ensued...

The people that made the culvert had some mad idea's!

More iron corrugatedness

And finally, the infall of this section

All in all this was a good mooch, nothing too long or back breaking, we headed out to the nearby Burger King for a burger and weird looks, which were free.
