A revisit to Nice 'n' Steady today! I proceeded past where i stopped yesterday for another couple hundred meters, making it to the chamber tarkovsky and his mate went to have a look at it in high flow. I noticed today that the water was slightly higher than yesterday which wasnt much of a problem. Anyway heres the photos!

Stood at the outfall giddy like a child on christmas morning!!!

Tunnel getting smaller.. It went to a 5ft rcp, it was way slippier than the 6.5ft section...

That drain is actually a brook! Starts near manor top. Can get to Darnall underground from the don. Short stretch above ground , then under again....surface in Bowden woods. Watch the weather......that brook can flood in 15 minutes!!!
