The mystery of those raised 'brick platforms' deepens!
I've found another one directly on top of the beck on the other side of the railway. This one appears to have access inside. I'm thinking i know whats in there when your under the beck.




Aren't the remains of the old Timble bridge to be found on one of these traffic islands somewhere? I thought i've read that on S.L before.

18th September 1950.A view of new access to Timble Beck from East Street bridge. In the background at the junction with Richmond Street are large premises, possible timber merchants.

Was down there this morning and can confirm that the eastgate lumps are nothing to do with the beck. It runs straight under thw roundabout, the manhole access can be seen to the right of Aaron's statue as you look at milgarth. +i think the lump before the viaduct is just coincidence. - ive noticed some steel hatches on the right in the shrubbery just before the bridge which I've mentioned before. There is alump of landscaping on the other side of the bridge in front of the hotel which has a manhole on the top of it, which strikes me as odd or poor planning.

Thanks for that info Cardiarms. I came across this cracking pic that shows the exact couse under the Eastgate roundabout. That Leodis website is invalueable for sure Wink

As you say at the bottom of this thread here Cardiarms

The beck runs under Millgarth Police station. I know it's a newer construction along Eastgate, so i'm guessing the course of the beck was altered slightly, and modernised under Millgarth, and along Eastgate in the 70's? I know it's a newer construction under there.
I seem to recall hoardings along, and the road Eastgate closed for ages.
