    hi im new to the game and was wondering if someone could give me some help with something im looking into? its something i noticed around the cliff area of higher broughton. now i know the guardian tunnels streach quite far but i know nobody is sure exactly how far. the entrances that i know of are the obvious ones and all but one seem to be obscured on google maps, i have found a place that is by the looks of it edited out of google maps for some reason. and i need help to ascertain what it is. it may be something or nothing and to be clear i am not linking it to the guardian but am using that as an example.. thanks much and im sure i will find a way to offend peoples site rules as im new but please be patient with me :)

    The guardian doesn't extend to that area, PM me the location in question and I will take a look at what I already have here

    The tunnels near the Irwell don't exist, besides where they were rumoured to be where the old tram line ran, the land subsided and also the course of the river has changed

    Yes there are meant to be tunnels very close to the cliff, but again nothing has ever turned up, myself and SL had a good poke about that area a few years back and never turned anything useful up, not to say there isn't

    There is a fairly big cable run not far from there, but that's another story for another day ;)

    I remember reading a story about an old built over street near The Cliff that was apparently accessible via a manhole cover in the middle of the road. I've driven round there quite a bit as it's on my route to/from work and I've never seen anything that looked likely unfortunately

    yeah i think thats a myth to be fair mate most of the tramlines and houses on the cliff fell down in the last landslides aroun the beggining of the last century..
    would be a great find that though,.

    The surface building you refer to where the old flats were is just a small substation, not sure why they haven't built on that land, it's a fair bit waterlogged, but nothing some decent drainage wouldn't sort

    If you're both conversing about a site, and no-one knows the location, then why not do the whole thing over email.

    Post the location in the thread and let's all have a gander
