Thanks to KMPunk for the invite and it was nice to meet some old faces again like JuJu and Ali and some new ones like Yorrick and JSP and Lost Explorer and some others too.

I have wanted to see this for a little while so was glad to go along,
Constructed in 1938 and is about one and a half miles long and takes water from the Markeaton basin across Derby and out into the River Derwent, It has a luvverly dual railed infall and a few nice features along the way before plopping out into the river Derwent.

Dry as a bone as you can see

Yeah thanks to @Punk for organising.

Really great to finally meet you too mate. Some of the best shots I've seen from here. Do you have any more?

You have come away with some cracking shots.

Cheers Punk for arranging things and was nice meeting you all.

These are glorious mate :thumb

Hope that girl got home okay on her slow puncture, I personally think it was a ploy and if we were not with you she would have bundled you in the boot and kidnapped you
She was only ten minutes from home where hubbie was waiting for the car

@The Kwan you've caught this well, really nice set of snaps. Thanks for coming along, great to catch up after a couple of years.

I've been here a number of times, buttered before have I bumped into kids while down there.

Shame we didn't bag a group shot :(
