Visited with The Kwan, Georgie, Telf, Lenston and The Wombat.

I had been wanting to visit this drain for ages, jumping at the chance when it came up. After a waders finding mission for The Wombat; we were on our way to meet the lads and go exploring. It was my first go at map reading in ages; was really surprised I could still just about manage it after such a long break!

We set off on our journey and put the waders to good use! I wasn't too keen on the spiders down there, luckily managing to avoid getting any of them on me! Also, wasn't going to let spiders get in the way of a good explore. Even managed to walk on the red brick section without stacking it!

We had a nice surprise of finding a family of ducklings; as much as I wanted to take them home with me, I left them where I found them. We also had a nasty surprise of finding a few needles; having to move them out of the way so we could carry on without catching AIDS or HEP.

I have borrowed the history from The Kwan:

"Even before the thirteenth century the river Sheaf drove the industrial wheels of Sheffield and was culverted and diverted to suit the needs of the mills and steel factories, In 1860 the Midland railway company purchased the rights to build the railway station straddling the river and so enclosing the water course."

Now for some photos....

Good to see the place getting more attention again

The spray creted bits look awful these days compared to what they were, then again strengthing work was required and it's not something most people would see anyway

Good effort, sounds like a decent trip :thumb
