On our way to Handbag Culvert, we decided to look down stream to see where it enters the canal. Both of us suspecting a smaller culvert ran parallel with the canal, we found it across the road. from Handbag.

History

Winding through the middle of Loughborough is Woodbrook. Since 1870, Woodbrook has mainly been below ground. This was following a Cholera outbreak in 1848.
This section of the brook starts after Bridge Street and eventually flows beneath the canal.
This is more a section of culverts rather than a single culvert. The majority of which is roughly 5ft high.

This is flows below the canal, looking at google earth and the OS it continues the other side of the canal.
