Pincroft Culvert, Adlington

May 2016

Theres not much to say about this one, its a short culvert taking the River Douglas underneath Pincroft dye works in Adlington. The brick outfall arch contains a grilled off smaller tunnel coming from the works above, the water here is steaming hot and has quite a strong ammonia smell to it. Further in the construction changes to stone before we get to what looks like an old buried brick bridge, and through the other side its back to stone again. Overhead through most of the culvert are reinforcing concrete beams vibrating away from the activity in the above works.
