Wevsky posted a topic in Underground ExploresThis was the 2nd explore on my last day up sunny North with Paul.where i knew i was going to need something a little heavier than my Velbon tripod which fitted nicely inside my rucksack,so entry to a few of the places visited was ballache with tut tripod on the outside of my bag which pissed me off no end with acces to places like this.. Anyway now you know that fascinating fact i shall continue. Hulme Flumes Little Brother it seems is a sewer overflow which outfalls into the River Medlock.Really enjoyed this one as small a place as it is,nice walk along the river to grab the standard shots in Umist on the way back As you step up from the river of rubbish you are greeted by this .. So a bit of this with Big torch seemed appropriate.. Very unprofessional Umbex of me as i couldnt be arsed to cliamber up and light down from the section just right,paul did but that's because he is a pro A shot looking down from the walk way and one from in the stink looking at that penstock which i had to climb back in several times to get to my satisfaction Got up close and personal to teh Poopz so i could have a proper look down here,paul wasn't sure but seemed to think this slope leads down to a syphon so any one who knows otherwise please feel free to chip in! Fisheye overkill to get it all in! and back out and heading towards Umist Coned off And off we trundled..thanks for looking at yet another report Does he look a happy chap
These aren't the best pics in the world but like a penis I didn't check my F until I was on my way out The manchester drizzle was coming down as normal but it didn't constitute rain so I parked up the van and pulled on my waders and high vis jacket Walking past the busy skatepark no one batted an eyelid due to my invisibility cloak Hulme Flumes Little Brother By the time I was leaving HFLB the fresh was starting to overflow and the noise levels were rising I reached the outfall and the river had risen about a foot, heading out meant I had a belly high wade across the river UMIST The River Medlock originally flowed a different path until this big concrete box was put in place to divert it
