Default Loco culvert, done! - 08-04-2011, 16:06

I dunno... I thought you lot liked culverts
I posted this in the leads section and nobody could be arsed

Was a super easy explore in the end.

I was told by a few people that this culvert went right under the Loco works but I can now tell you that it only goes under the road to the works and just misses the buildings by feet.
There are man-holes along the way and the loud bangs I could hear turned out to be wagons driving over them. I could also hear people talking above me when I stopped under one of them.

When I went the new fence was actually being fitted by the workers and when I came out it was finished! They all laughed at me until I walked around the corner through a gap they didn't know about . They were cool really, they did offer me their ladder to climb over with and we had a quick chat about the culvert.





















Now I can get on with the 3 real explores I have lined up

Thanks man, I planned a trip to one of the adits but we have all forgot the exact location after a full day of searching I gave up and jumped in here instead.

Was a nice explore but rather short and there isn't much else in the area to do.

I saw the Womble project post
Looks great but Im not feeling the need to visit it .

Got a few nice ones lined-up but one of them is a return trip to the adit we have now lost.

Its one that we have found before though and even took pictures of it. I'll share it with the forum once I've managed to do a proper explore.
