    The Medlock rises at Strinesdale,
    the culverts start at Etihad Stadium
    and finish at Potato Wharf
    length of about 4 miles.
    The Medlock then continues, merging with the Irwell at Hume Locks.

    Nice one mate, Pics are bob on, I know you battled with the elements a lot, along the way. :thumb The rocks before Humpty and the shit that's washed through (and been left there) are a fucking disgrace. Environ-mental. They gave up breaking up the concrete, from under the bricks, in the end. Why can't they just leave things be. :(
