    I couldn't get through the infall, but reach 100yds through the ouffall.
    Theres 2 ft of debris at one side of the culvert that went 100 yds, which was crumbling as I tried to cross
    then a sheer & deep drop in the water with sludge beneath.
    Extremely difficult to pass, but well worth the effort.

    Last culvert along the Medlock before reaching the Irwell,
    the culvert runs from Deansgate to Potato Wharf, passes beneath the canal basin.
    Built about 1790, Consists of a 700yd brick arch with a single air shaft.
    Theres a weir & well which allows excess water to discharge to the culvert.
