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.

Just up the narrow rock section were the remains of a cut stone archway, the floor in front was flat and it looked like the culvert could once be throttled by some kind of sluice which rode in iron runners either side.
