Thanks for a good day exploring KM Punk and The Shepshed Diamond Back,
but next time KM Punk trying unblocking it when I am out the way, he he ;)

History

Cheers for letting me use your history KM Punk, much appreciated : )

Hidden in stunning countryside a little beauty remains undisturbed, built in 1877/78 when a railway was under construction, the culvert is a quarter of a mile from Marefield.
Marefield Culvert goes under an embankment on the Great Northern Railway south of John O'Gaunt Station and Viaduct, the brook flows in at the Eastern Portal, which is one portal then flows out the two western portals with a junction close to the eastern portal.
It is full of beautiful brick work that must really be admired and appreciated, what amazing
architecture.

Nice photos, gotta agree about the brickwork, makes it worth the visit alone, splashing about in water is just a bonus :)
