This actually comprises of two different Victorian culverts built to take a brook under both the 'Cheshire Lines Railway' and 'Sheffield and Midlands Railway'. When the land above was landscaped the two were joined with a precast concrete section. The entire culvert is around 200meters long and we spend about an hour down there.

Not seen this one on here before so thought I would share.

Heres a few pictures:

The east entrance and the newer of the two victorian sections, I'm pretty sure the entrance has been rebuild more recently though judging by the bricks.

Heading down the newer victorian section, you can just about make out the modern precast section in the distance.

Looking back towards the east entrance, the modern outflow pipe seem to come from a large overflow although we couldn't find any access to this above ground.

Modern precast section dog legs between the two victorian sections.

The modern section then ajoins the older of the two Victorian section, again I think with later brickwork around the 'entrance'.

Looking back from the older victorian section into the modern precast section.
