Arrow Mussels Culvert - Warrington - April - 2011 - - 04-04-2011, 21:20

reposted due to serious spelling mistake lol...

i came across this whilst noseing around appleton reservoir.

starting from the reservoir itself this long open tunnel goes under park lane then culverts under houghs lane ,then forms some sort of algea slide behind someones garden then dissapears under the ground and reappeares alongside walton hall golf course.


after a while in the main culvert i noticed mussel shells in the water and on closer inspection the whole place was full of em along with the brook

i name this place mussels culvert

explored solo





standing here imagining what it would be like if the gate suddenly opened and all the water came crashing in








(the slide of death) to the left was someones garden so this is as far as i went ,but picked it up where the culverted part ended later on ,it was covered in green algea and was really slippy,one could only imagine what it would be like with a rubber ring


then it gets culverted again...you can just make out some mussels in the middle





and flows into the golf course brook...hmm are they mussels?






ohh just before i go apparently the reservoir has a strict no scum policy,so if you see any please report it
