Basically a culverted watercourse taken from the Strinesdale reservoir which runs through a water treatment plant, another section runs under the site of the now demolished Orb Mill and a section which runs under Majestic Mill, a really nice mix of old stone, brick, some occasional concrete..... and slippy floors.

The water source comes from Strinesdale which is an area of water and woodland covering approximately 40 acres (162,000 m²). In 1991, the reservoirs were drained and replaced by two smaller lakes with the old reservoir sites being planted with trees and grassland. The original reservoirs were built in 1828 and the erected plaque can be seen at Upper Strinesdale.

First done and named as far as i'm aware, by Ojay and TLR last year.


The infall at the beginning of the first section at what's know locally as "The golden steps" a nice old stone arched section​
