Good to have a wander around somewhere different. Nicely shot too.

On the same sort of Topic, anyone else fancy doing the whole of the Gwenfro culvert in Wrexham? I've never seen it done start to finish.

Iestyn - I'd say a half day, and it will be wet. Waders or Neoprene are a must.

Steve. I'll have a look-see if You want. Fancy texting/PM'ing me where it is?

Will go down the Gwenfro, if going by boat :silly:

Noticed there are a few culverts along the canal, an potentially intresting one being near the sun trevor pub, especially as I see no evidence of where it re-emerges.

If there is a huge dump truck involved, count me in for that part. I don't do drains / culverts.
