Solicitor is a culvert of the Eaves brook that flows through Preston. It's around 900m long and joins with the Savick Book straight after the outfall.

Although the infall is stone the rest is mostly built of brick and of a respectable walking height. There were a few changes of shape and plenty of mineral deposits to make for some interesting photos.

Hanging from quite a few manhole shafts were lines with bags of sewer bait suspended just out the flow, the wrapper mentioned something about rat control. Quite why you'd want to kill off a drains rodent population I don't know.

The most impressive section had 16 brick reinforcement arches, most likely where a railway passed overhead.

After some concrete pipe the outfall was a squat brick structure sat on a meander of the Savick Brook.
