Tittesworth Reservoir Overflow, Staffordshire - July 2018

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
Visited with Humpa whilst out and about in the local area, checking out various new bits as well as some of the old classic places just to see how they were doing (generally quite badly!), also involved a stop off at the excellent BeerDock in Leek, be sure to check that out if you're ever in the Read more

A Bit of the Hockley Brook, Birmingham - January 2018

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
After having a bit of a failure to start our day we headed down to Birmingham to have a look at a few bits and pieces. It appears that there was far more to see than we actually did see, but it was nice nonetheless, and now I just have an excuse to go back some time. Standard Wikipedia information Read more

Byker Culvert, Newcastle-upon-Tyne - July 2013

Concrete culvert constructed between 1907-1911 carrying the Ouseburn underneath the suburb of Heaton. Runs for a total length of 2150 ft and built at a cost of £23,000.

Bypass, Bradford - March 2013

Big thanks to Ojay and Squizz for showing us around, really appreciated. This was for LE's birthday explore, so of course there was a cake and a meal out at Maccies. A really enjoyable explore, something I'd been wanting to do for ages now. Hopefully go back up to Bradford to see more some time Read more

Underground Reservoir, Stone - March 2013

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
No info really on this one, it's a seemingly disused underground reservoir, from the water marks on the walls doesn't look like it's been full for a long time. Not much to see but it has a nice ball float valve. It possibly could of had something to do with the nearby Meaford Power Station, one of Read more

Stoke Mega - March 2013

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
It'd been quite some time since we'd had the waders out so we were both itching to get out and decided to head down to Mega. BAJ had been before but this was the first time I'd gotten around to doing it. Not the most interesting of drains - all pretty modern, nice little stone bit at the start that Read more

Masticator (Meanwood Beck), Leeds - October 2012

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
Many a laugh was had on this adventure, really enjoyed it, except when I had a welly breach! I have a few videos that I may bung up at some point of some of the funnier moments. Anyway, true to form we were late arriving, after a quick beer stop in the Primrose we ventured in and made our way along Read more

Megatron, Sheffield - September 2012

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
The city of Sheffield derives its name from the Sheaf; the river which was culverted beneath the city's streets in the 1860's. Until the 17th century the name Sheaf was written as Scheth or Sheath. Sidney Oldall Addy equates the origins of this word with the Old English shed (as in water-shed) or Read more

Bewl Water Overflow, Sussex - September 2012

Bewl Water is a reservoir in the valley of the River Bewl (which is a tributary of the River Teise), straddling the boundary between Kent and East Sussex. It is about 4 km south of Lamberhurst, Kent, England. The reservoir was part of a project to increase supplies of water in the area. It supplies Read more

Blood Creek, Stoke - May 2012

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
Blood creek is a culverted part of the Cockster brook running under Longton, not entirely sure where it comes out, I have a few ideas of where it could be though so further investigation will be done. Don't think it will be possible to climb up the slide, probably easier to start at the other end Read more
