Visited with a non-member. Was a cracking little explore and day, ended with Cubans on the top deck of Dunlop, Brynmawr. Photos taken on a little rugged point and shoot with a pretty gash flash, didn't fancy taking the Nikon in a manky wet tunnel...

History 'borrowed' from Lenston :)

'The Culvert in Ebbw Vale is along the River Ebbw Fawr, a stretch of just over a mile of the river was culverted in 1937 to accommodate expansion of the steel works. The tunnel was originally a brick lined concrete arch for its entire length. In places it has raised walkways on either side, it is well documented that someone died in this Culvert from touching a live wire that some metal theives had cut some years ago.'

Nice, wouldn't mind seeing this. I've seen SLRs in far worse places though mate.

It's a good little tunnel fair play. There are other decent sections further upstream under the rugby pitch, and another section further downstream that I'm yet to explore. Just waiting on decent weather :)

My Nikon worked fine in there, not so happy memories going for a swim :) Glad you got in there ok
I remember you telling me about your swim, that's what half pursuaded me to take my point and shoot. That and the fact that it's waterproof, freezeproof and all sort of proof :D

Grotty little place but well interesting by the looks of it. Fair bit of gravel in there huh?
