    Default Wadesmill Culvert - May 2017


    So after meeting up for the Derby drain day I remembered that there was a small culvert only half hours drive. It wasn't a planned visit more of a "i'm board where can i go" kind of visit. So off i went in search of it one evening.

    There isn't much about it online, but i have found out it was built because once the village got badly flooded and the culvert was constructed to prevent this from happening again, taking the water away from the village and redirecting it into the river. Brick barrel culvert with a concrete insitu section where new housing was built 20m from the downstream section, It is 265m in length x 1.8h x 1.8w.

    on with the photos





















    where concrete meets brick

















    Thanks for looking

    Reckon we could get a mini through there? Looks a bit narrow which is a real shame! *goes off singing Self Preservation Society to himself*
