Visited with @Esoteric Eric who spotted the entrance to this culvert a few days before we returned for a proper look inside. Plenty of different sections made this a really nice wander. Decided to chance it in wellies rather than wad0rz on this occasion, a decision I slightly regretted when it got to a deep bit in the middle...

This is a culverted section of The River Ribble, a minor river running through the town of Holmfirth in Kirklees, West Yorkshire, England. It is a tributary of the River Holme.

Rising at the outflow of Holme Styes Reservoir, itself fed by Reynard Clough (which has a tributary, Catholes Gutter), Hades Clough and Long Ing Dike, the Ribble flows northwards, collecting Fox Clough and Beaver Clough from the west, before joining the River Holme by Towngate and Hollowgate in Holmfirth.The confluence of the two rivers was also marked by a weir, but this was removed in 1944 when Italian Prisoners of War were tasked with removing it.
