Visited with @stranton And @ACID- REFLUX. Thx to them both for the great time had here.

Anyways on with the report and pics

History

Inhospitable

Inhospitable is a 700yd culvert which carries the moss brook beneath Collyhurst,

the infall consists of a 15ft brick arch

this changes too a10ft brick arch which continues towards the outfall

which consists of a 7ft brick pipe built 8ft up in a retaining wall.

Halfway through the culvert theres an overflow chamber with a manual operated penstock,

once the flow gets too strong the penstock drops blocking the culvert

this causes the brook too divert along the works

something which seldon occurs.

the Works

the Works is a 700yd overflow which passes alongside and below Inhospitable,

consists of a 10ft red and black brick pipe.

This exits the overflow chamber by droping down 2 sets of steps the latter been steep,

once at the bottom you are at least 70ft below the surface.

Both the moss brook and the Works discharge too the Irk,

(one of Manchesters 2 secondary waterways).
