The water levels were quite low, so was a good opportunity to do this one. Evington brook & Bushby Brook merge together to form Willow brook, which passes through a tunnel underneath the Midland Mainline. The eastern portals join in the middle of the tunnel, whilst the west portal has a train tunnel sized bore. The brook has picked up a large assortment of rubbish, which has collected in the middle, including a workman’s hat and a bar stool.

An enourmous duck flew at us from out of the depths of the tunnel, and scared the crap out of us! It’s a bit slippery in there; King Mongoose slipped twice, and later dropped my pride and joy torch in the river. Fortunately, he retrieved it, and it still works.

Explored with King Mongoose, and a big hangover.

Thanks losttom!
There is some bizarre & rancid rubbish in there
Aside from the usual shopping trolleys & condoms, we found a full height breakfast table stall; how did that end up in there?!
