Minotaurs Liar is a culvert that takes the Hyndburn brook around 265m under a field. What appeared to be a fairly standard stone arch culvert turned out to be a bit more interesting. A occasional curious deep sound eminated from within, we never found what was causing it.
Half way along the arch met a narrow rocky section, the flow increased in speed and some deep pools made progress slow. We put the cameras away here to cling to the edge and navigate the slippery rocks. It reminded me of caving and was actually quite good fun.
Around this point the aperture ring on my lens decided to disconnect, so was unable to capture any more of the rocky tunnel or where it transitions to brick arch.
