Unusual segmented Northumbrian field drain

0 33

Found during drainage work in a field near Eshott, Northumbria and donated to the cause by Kevin Monaghan.

These segments are slightly curved across their width and join together along their length by a tongue and groove method.

They form a complete circle.

As far as I am aware this type of field drain is only found in Northumbria however the manufacturer is unknown.
