Default Bolton Town Centre Culverts - 28/04/11 - 29-04-2011, 11:09

This has had a fair few reports but it has been on my to-do list for a while now and so as the weather was nice we decided to have a gander......
Not much history but the tunnels are basically for the river croal to run under the town centre, with a few rather interesting features along the way...
Visited with Snake Oil













This was freaky, white lillys tied up with a note saying "To the woman with the black eye, i'm watching you x" .......






Snake Oil under the shopping centre




Mayo anyone?








Another one "ticked"........

Looking up to a manhole, how tempting to go up and take peek where we were






we didn't have time to see where this small tunnel went...

Nice, did you read that message on them flowers that where hung up it was pretty weird.

And i also didnt expect to see that amount of fish down there, it cant be the cleanest water running through bolton town center.
