    Visited with @Coolboyslim @OmegaRose & @Reich ,
    thanks for persevering with me on this. :thumb
    Apologies for the poor quality of some photographs,
    the lighting conditions were against me.

    A side pipe 45° too the main discharges sewerage from the sewer to the Medlock,
    (one of Manchesters two secondary waterways) during bad conditions.
    Once the flow gets too strong, the penstock drops blocking the sewer.
    This causes water too divert along the side pipe droping its load, thankfully this seldon occurs.
    The arch side pipe is 400mtes long, 1.8 mtes wide and made of red or black bricks.
    The arch sewer is long, 2.1mtes wide and made of red or black bricks.
    This passes through a manually operated penstock , no.14
    then down a steep cascade into the abyss
    ladders lead too a walkway for maintainence purposes.

    side pipe, (Combined Sewer Outflow CSO)

    Good report this!
    As you say the photos might not be the best, but I really love your shot of the sewer heading down into the abyss - can't say I have seen a photo of the tunnel so perilously close to the edge. :eek:

    The pipe is extremly slippery with nothing too hold on too,
    so I had too use tripod as support
    I wouldnt advise passing through the penstock with no rope
    according too Ojay theres steps rather than a slope?
