    Mickerbrooker Glory - Cheadle


    After a morning of wading around in the Medlock and poking around a sewer, I needed something
    less demanding, and as I was passing through Cheadle, I thought I'd drop in on this...

    Originally discovered just over a year ago by Camera Shy. Mickerbrooker Glory is a small culvert
    of the Micker Brook , which in turn runs into the river Mersey.

    The culvert runs for Approximately 400 metres, from the infall in abney park, under Manchester
    Road and down to the outfall in Mill lane cemetary.

    Looking in from the brook, and it looks promising

    looking back towards the brook

    part of the brickwork seems to be giving way directly under the main road

    [​IMG]

    It really starts to sludge up at this point and I get that sinking feeling

    [​IMG]

    It might be sludgey but it's absolutely teeming with hundreds of fish

    [​IMG]

    the sludge recedes and it's back to brick underfoot

    I really wasn't expecting much but the in-fall is really quite photogenic :D

    Not a bad way to kill half an hour or so, even if the wellies were full, and I was late for the school-run :eek:

    Thanks for looking

    I was in mill lane cemetery this morning and I thought I'd give this a go however due to all of the rain I think I'll be waiting until the water levels had gone down a little. The brook does go through another tunnel a little further down stream as well which looks interesting and has easy access as there are some steps leading down to it.

    Its worth a poke, if only for a look at the infall.
    Take a fishing net with you and dinners sorted :thumb
