Barley Brook, Wigan

March 2015 - Explored with Kenni and Viraleye

Information on this one seems very scarce, so all I can say is its a culverted section of Barley brook in Wigan! The arched entrance was really steamy making photos difficult and is just about big enough to stand in, but very shortly reduces in height before changing to a very stoopy and slippery round brick pipe which forms the majority of this drain. The end of the drain is blocked by a sump just short of the outfall, I'm not sure if this is what we hit but stoopy suddenly dropped to what would have to be a belly crawl to get through so its as far as we could go.

Unfortunately the battery died in my camera so the last two shots are bobbins phone snaps
