The Brickwork would have been done in the open. Dug huge trenches then built the bottom till half way, using a former then did the top arch. A few million brickYes, the way they made that crazy fountain to redirect the flow once it left the culvert - and also the amazing brickwork that has lasted all these years, imagine being a brickie working down there!
Watched all his stuff over the last few months. His enthusiasm is infectious, and he goes out of his way to show everything possible and bring it all to life.I have shared a couple of Martin Zero's videos before. His latest I really enjoyed.
If you are familiar with Gorton's Debdale reservoirs and golf course this may interest you too.
A lot longer than his usual videos (42 mins) but is well worth it.
As usual, Martin doesnt just go down and walk the culvert, but gives the full history of it too.
Grab a beer and a packet of crisps and enjoy
