Hayfield Culverts


Parking in the centre of the town I got a few odd looks putting the wellys on
I had marked the spots on gmaps app on my phone and headed off for the first culvert

Rather than go up the stream I decided to start on the other side of town and follow the flow of the stream

First off was the nice little subway which is in no way urbex related but I like the pic

The first culvert was a short stoopy affair but I wasn't going to let that put me off as I knew there was better ahead

Then it was onto the main reason I was there

The silt was deep and pretty soon I was thigh deep in the wet stuff with fish jumping around my feet and spiders hanging above my head, I didn't get many pics as I spent the next half an hour trying to keep my camera dry and avoid the eight legged beasts

I emerged across town near the car park

Long Hill Culvert

Driving home I spotted a stream heading under the road so I decided to have a look.

The culvert was so much more than I expected

heading in the arch revealed a brick culvert that opened into a large chamber
