A section of this was originally reported by Styru in 2013...

The only snippet of history I could find, is that it was locally named Shit Brook, ie open sewer. In parts it still smells fresh so nothing seems to have changed really. There's also a few sections where the construction seems to reinforce this, with a central channel typically used for these purposes.

The culvert is in 4 sections, it seems. The Southern section explored by Styru, a Central section, a section so small it's not worth mentioning, and a Northern section.

The first explore was the Southern section, with Styru and The Queen...

So a few weeks later Styru and myself went back to do the Central section...

This is some of the construction I thought was particularly old...

You can't really tell, but this was quite a steep slope with handholds...

This section was notable by the number of different constructions, quite visible here...

Finally I went to see the Northern section. A very stoopy concrete pipe grated at one end, and stinking of fresh at the other, with nice grey-brown effluent froth, so I gave that a miss for being fetid and backbreaking.
