Decided to finally get to Bacup to have a mooch at the River Irwell Culverts.

They take the river under the town centre for around 3/4km.

A couple of brooks run into the main culvert via their own little culvert system.

Mostly a mixture of stone and brick arch design.
There's allso a new concrete stretch where the culvert was opened for repair not long ago.

A great afternoon underground and finally ticked off the list :)

Downriver was a small culvert where the River goes under the aptly named "River Street".

This was only around 167metres long, but it killed a bit of time.

Stone arched all the way, with some parts lined with concrete.
