Superlative Nomenclature Drain, Accrington - Visited By Ojay and Andyj23UK.

Continuing with the Accrington underground, same day different shit (Sorry Drain).

Following on from 'Warmden Grotto' (http://www.urbexforums.co.uk/showthread.php?8945-Warmden-Grotto-Accrington-June-2010) is another section downstream, discovered by Little Mike and known as 'Superlative Nomenclature'.

Again a rocky, stoopy mix of brick & stone winding under the forgotten industry in the ghetto known as Accrington.

Amazingly Accrington seems to have much more to offer underground than overground :rolleyes: and for that reason a number of return visits will probably follow.

On with a few photos.....



More stonework


They had levelled a mill above, and were working on this section as we passed underneath


Further downstream this strange Syphon system




Eventually downstream we passed through this long brick/stone tunnel, with a curious hole on the right. Andy informed me this was a tunnel Which goes underneath the Police station


Naturally I had to go take a look. This was a real shrinker and silted up to hell. Once again I found myself crawling around in glupey shite and mud. We crawled as far as we could before it was bricked up.....


Just as I thought this place couldn't possibly have anything else to offer, we stumbled upon this large RCP, before Andy had finished explaining what was up there I was already up and in. (Getting out was a different matter).


It was slippy as hell as I found out a bit later on.... oh and full of frogs & toads. Infact some of them even resembled the RCP, both in texture and colour, amazing to think spend enough time in drains and you could turn out looking like this :rolleyes:


A bit further up and it changed shape again, infact like nothing I have ever seen before, was quite a sight


This section continued for about 50yds before it changed back to the ever familiar crumbling stone, I had no intention of going any further as it appeared to be a real shrinker and sharp as fook :eek:

As I attempted to climb down and out of the RCP, the innevitable happened, I slid right out on my arse and into the Brook much to the amusement of Andy, although to be fair he did show some concern. No sooner had I dried off from the earlier comedy access to 'Warmden Grotto' (http://www.urbexforums.co.uk/showthread.php?8945-Warmden-Grotto-Accrington-June-2010) I was now soaked to the skin again.... Meh.

Further downstream, before we eventually hauled our arses out for another rainy day.


Thanks for looking :thumb
