    The Bushby and Evington brooks merge by Green Lane road too form the Willow brook,
    the culverts start at Midland main route
    and finish at Belgrave road
    length of about 1.7 miles.
    The brook then continues, eventually merging with the Grand Union canal.

    The Leicester culverts are worth a mooch alright.
    There were plenty of old mobile phones in the section below the railway line.
    I'm shocked to notice that it was 5 and a half years ago when I went down there!
