This Culvert takes the Gore brook round and over Gorton Reservoir.

We started at the upstream end and went a bit further upstream. There were some new looking sections from recent building works.

You could hear the fall's roar echoing from quite some way away:

We turned round at this point as took so long wandering down, but will return to see the larger falls downstream. Was a really nice culvert with lovely brickwork, especially at the confluences. Good if your ever up for a wander in the jungle!
