    Ok time to stick my reports up. Visited with @stranton And @ACID- REFLUX. Thx to them both and thanks to @The Lone Ranger And you know i forgot the bloody name but you know who you are with the advice on waders there bloody good. Anyways on with the report and pics will borrow from strantons post has it seems there are a few up now.

    History

    Inhospitable
    Inhospitable is a 700yd culvert which carries the moss brook beneath Collyhurst,
    the infall consists of a 15ft brick arch
    this changes too a10ft brick arch which continues towards the outfall
    which consists of a 7ft brick pipe built 8ft up in a retaining wall.
    Halfway through the culvert theres an overflow chamber with a manual operated penstock,
    once the flow gets too strong the penstock drops blocking the culvert
    this causes the brook too divert along the works
    something which seldon occurs.

    the Works
    the Works is a 700yd overflow which passes alongside and below Inhospitable,
    consists of a 10ft red and black brick pipe.
    This exits the overflow chamber by droping down 2 sets of steps the latter been steep,
    once at the bottom you are at least 70ft below the surface.
    Both the moss brook and the Works discharge too the Irk,
    (one of Manchesters 2 secondary waterways).
    Slightly Different has i don't know what pics are what lol useless with the names.

    Pics.
