Hello this is the Roman Lakes Marple it’s a maze of tunnels and odd foundations at a site of a old mill. Some of tunnels were for the use of water and the rest of them were for people. We had to dig into some of the tunnels with a spade to get access. It is an interesting site that not many people can find with loads to explore.

I can give directions if anyone in the area wants to visit it’s a great couple of hours. If you think my report is rubbish I would like some advice and I won’t get offended cheers.

I used to play in these tunnels when I was a kid but never explored them properly because we weren't supposed to be down there and our torches were crap!

One thing I remember was exploring a culvert which ran from the Roman Lakes and came to a sudden end where the outfall just dropped 40ft or so down into the Goyt :eek:
Your last pic looks a bit like the midway entry point to that culvert.
Must go back there one day. :)
