It's never had a name but now most certainly it will live up to the seedy ginnel tag nicely.

i used to frequent the beck ,from around appleyards down to town with a girl called tracey wood (yes ,i was such a romantic,and knew how to spoil the girls) what i remember is the vivid colours of the waters,had to be from the tannery i suppose.also the eggy smell.oh! hang on a minute,we used to get onto a beck on lincoln green road,that one led into meanwood culverts (it came from under stoney rock lane) me thinks,though one has been known to make mistakes......from time to time.
i do believe,induced by potent circumstances,that thou art' mine enemy?

No Rangie. It's a big slap on the wrist mega fine for trespass on railway property! a criminal offence & not a civil offence so i believe! not to be done! An example to be made off! Great view tho!
