At just under 5ft this unassuming RCP pokes out from underneath a low bridge/footpath
Again it was one of those recces I had just never bothered to take a closer look at until now..
The river flows through this culverted section stretching from the outfall which snakes underground for approx half a mile before reaching a grilled infall
Along the way several manholes, a catchment pit an interesting junction with stairs, another junction upstream with a 2ft connecting surface drain and a long section of CMP before reaching the infall
But before you get to see all that stuff it's a long slog through a stoopy, repetitive concrete pipe!
Barely a 5ft RCP which connects the various features before leading to the infall
Mid Junction - Here a lesser stream joins the river
Upper Junction - Here a 2ft connecting drain, with an adjoining section of CMP
CMP - This was around 200 yards long before reaching the infall
