    This was the 2nd explore on my last day up sunny North with Paul.where i knew i was going to need something a little heavier than my Velbon tripod which fitted nicely inside my rucksack,so entry to a few of the places visited was ballache with tut tripod on the outside of my bag which pissed me off no end with acces to places like this..

    Anyway now you know that fascinating fact i shall continue.

    Hulme Flumes Little Brother it seems is a sewer overflow which outfalls into the River Medlock.Really enjoyed this one as small a place as it is,nice walk along the river to grab the standard shots in Umist on the way back

    As you step up from the river of rubbish you are greeted by this ..

    So a bit of this with Big torch seemed appropriate..

    Very unprofessional Umbex of me as i couldnt be arsed to cliamber up and light down from the section just right,paul did but that's because he is a pro :)

    [​IMG]

    A shot looking down from the walk way and one from in the stink looking at that penstock which i had to climb back in several times to get to my satisfaction

    [​IMG][/IMG] [​IMG]

    Got up close and personal to the Poopz so i could have a proper look down here,paul wasn't sure but seemed to think this slope leads down to a syphon so any one who knows otherwise please feel free to chip in!

    [​IMG]

    Fisheye overkill to get it all in!
    [​IMG]

    and back out and heading towards Umist

    [​IMG]

    Coned off

    It may be grim up north (well past the m25 is north) but they do have some lovely drains

    It would appear so looking at the amount of reports yourself and Mr Powers are sticking up!

    Levels must've been right down if Paul wasn't getting wet bollocks in the last pic. Excellently caught fellow old bastard. :thumb

    Looking back towards the penstock from the other side would be a lovely shot, the brickwork curves in really nicely. I've never been brave enough to hang around to try and shoot it though!

    It would be good to go with rope one time just for a shot down the cascade, would still be dodgy though.

    Yeah Scott once asked me if I fancied roping down there with him. There must've been a very long list of people he asked before me who gave the same answer as I did.

    I love the tone of the brick in HFLB.
