    Situated on an overgrown bank of the River Irwell in Bury is the concrete outfall of this CSO.

    About 10 metres in is a small inspection chamber containing a fair amount of calcium deposits caused by dripping water.

    About 4 metres further through the RCP is the overflow chamber.

    The outfall section of the overflow chamber is separated from a stilling pond by a heavily clogged-up grille.

    A gap in the grille gives view to a penstock below, and possible access to the other side with the help of another person as the drop is deep.

    Good to see again, the amount of time I wasted looking for the manhole, fun times and good to see others bothering with this sort of stuff :thumb

    I managed the crossing there in wellies one summer, it's about as shallow as you will ever get really with the Irwell

    Grille looks like it needs replacing, amazed UU can get away with this, although once out of EU diktat, perhaps it will become easier?
