    I completely ran out of easy leads for drains in York, they are all manhole jobies. So decided to draw up a list of places near to Leeds. This is a 750m culvert that runs underneath Dewsbury. Unfortunately I don't know the name of the stream.

    This is my first attempt with my S6500 so any constructive crit on the photos is very welcome. I suspect most of my lighting setups are a bit rubbish :)

    Anyway, on with the photos. Arriving at the outfall I was disappointed to find I needed written authorisation to enter.

    I was about to head home in a sulk when I remembered I had my trusty memo pad and Argos pen with me. Alright, lets go!

    Inside there is a mish mash of different materials used, brick/concrete and bigger limestone(?) bricks. There was a plaque just inside the outfall with the date 1988. Modern bricks! Awesome!
    This is just round the first corner looking towards the outfall.

    A hole was brutally smashed in the wall to allow for a manhole access and some pipes (gas/water?)

    A short way in the tunnel really opens up really wide. Really cool. There was also a bricked up junction here, didn't get a photo of that though.

    The tunnel isn't very deep, only a couple of meters at most. There was loads of grated shafts in the middle of the tunnel letting natural light flow in. This one was by far the biggest, in the middle of the chamber. Beam me up scotty!

    Just another tunnel pic!

    Daylight! Looking on google earth the stream continues for quite a way with quite a few more 100m underground sections. It's always good to leave something for another day!

    Then time to head back to the KFC toilets to clean up.

    I had another 2 drains I wanted to at least recce in Bradford but I only had a google map with about 2 road names on it so as soon as I took a wrong turn I was helplessly lost. Sometime next week maybe :)
