    A night packed full of madness!

    All explores visited with Stepping Lightly, Userscott and Sneak

    An amazing day out!
    Apart from the three stated explored we also did a never before seen drain in Manchester named 'Chisel Ma Nizzle' which involved climbing down an electron ladder and into it with the Irwell rushing by right at the enterance!
    Unfortunately I did not bring my camera for that one.

    Anyway, on with the photos (flash used due to lack of tripod)

    Hulme Flume

    This sewer was amazing! It was huge inside and I really enjoyed learning about how the penstocks are raised and lowered. Definately one of the most impressive places I have ever been to...

    And then on the exit we were met by the view of multiple police (maybe armed response) were checking out Userscotts veichle for a while before heading in seperate directions...

    Twin Turbo

    This was a tiny, yet amazing place. This was found by Userscott and Little Mike and then named Twin Turbo by the Sneakster himself because of the two huge sewer pipes running parallel within 50 feet of eachother. Not many shots but a terrific place...

    3: Finally further down to the left is a clear view of the second sewer.

    Finally - Pumphouse Shaft


    What a way to finish the night! Stepping Lightly drove us to this one... No idea where abouts it was - just in the middle of nowhere to be honest. Anyway after being in the car for ages we finally reached our destination. It took a little country walk and we reached the enterance. Down we went, reaching the lowest level after only a couple of ladders. After this we had to walk alongside a huge pipe for a fair few hundred feet. At the end of the pipe was the tallest shaft I have ever seen! Turns out we were climbing up the inside of the hills. Anyway again I have very few shots so here they are...

    2: End of the line.

    And then off we set, back home after a brilliant night!​
