Finding loads of stuff i haven't posted before in the depths of the laptop..

i've known about this tunnel for years, but finally decided to investigate it further.
every time i've been in the area before, i didn't have torch or a camera (usually just my fishing rod).

it starts off quite tall, but soon stoops to 2foot x 2foot in places.
i went as far as i could, but it got very stodgy with thick mud, so decided to leave it and go back with waders and kneepads soon.

only when i got home and looked at the pics, i noticed a strange wheel blocking the tunnel and going any further.

as far as i can tell, the tunnel is a water run off for a nearby mill :)
