recent information regarding me and kevsy21's previous explore of preston book http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=53828 took me back here to see what lied further upstream.

explored solo

after following the brook for a while i was met with a 2 way tunnel system,with the right leading under the bridgewater canal, and the left bending off with a rushing water echoing from inside.

end of the line, i wasnt sure if it went any further underground the path ahead was overgrown with various shrubbery so i called it a day and decided to walk down the other tunnel and go check out the left side of the original tunnel entrance

there was a rush of water which got me excited, a stair chamber maybe?...nahh after a short stoop it was just a pipe pissing water down from above...and a dead end
