Hi all.

I've had this one on my radar for around 9 Months and awaited the Winter and Spring to pass to ensure good water levels in the River Trent. I've uploaded 30 images however they are not showing up for me hopefully you can see them.
Built in the second half of the 1800s and completed by 1884, The Beck Burn was once an open and natural beck / stream until the decision was made to cover up and hideaway the entire course by means of drains and Culverts. The source being beside the St Ann's area of Nottingham before getting gradually wider and depositing into the River Trent picking up numerous additional flows of surface water, streams and probably sewage along the way. Below are some images and a YouTube video of the full visit we covered. The full course is a touch over 2 miles in length.
