    Gripper Drain - Manchester

    Well, after a period of inactivity due to a glass back and lazy arse,
    I thought I'd take it back to where it all began with my first whiff of fresh 'Gripper drain'

    It's a short but sweet affair, clean a whistle and with a few nice little features

    The once gated outfall, with the distinctive gripper walkways on either side

    can't whack a nice afternoon stroll through an arachnid infested hole in the ground

    brick into concrete box section and as with most manc drains, a bit of spraycrete for effect

    and with the grated infall..were done, hardly awe inspiring but still a nice wander :thumb

    Used to love going through there as a kid.
    'Witch's Tunnel' it used to be known as then.
    Looks like it has been cleaned up a fair bit recently.
