Visited with Xan.

So on a cold, sunny winter's day, I decided it was finally time that I lost my virginity in a cold, wet, tight space. Culvert virginity, that is. I was taken to a steaming waterway known only as "Xan's pants" due to the resemblance of it to our friend's trousers - soggy, dirty and unchanged since installation.

Just kidding, mate :rolleyes:


History
There's not much history to the place as it's pretty much just a reinforced concrete box built in 1968 and it's over 2 miles long. About 100m after the infall [6], that tunnel is combined [4] with another flow [3] who's source is not yet known. It then runs pretty much straight until about halfway along where another side flow runs into the main culvert. It then starts meandering through a suburban area (it's most likely cut and cover construction) until and 200m from the outfall where it curves gently. It becomes too deep for wellies at this point.
