    Slim Pickings, Manchester

    Explored with Ojay, Nickindroy and Viraleye

    Slim Pickings is a big brick built stilling pond overflow for Manchesters Work 6 interceptor sewer, outfalling to the nearby River Medlock via a 2 metre RCP. The long outfall tunnel has a single side pipe leading to a tall chamber with a small watercourse entering from the top and reaching the bottom via a drop shaft into a small pool before spilling out into the main outfall towards the river.

    Loving the brickwork in these shots :popcorn. Can't believe I've still never done a drain. Think this might have to be my first one by the looks of it. Nice shots anyway mate :thumb.

    Especially these 2

    I do like this drain. The brickwork is a real treat and comes as quite a surprise after a reasonable walk up that RCP.
    Can't see myself heading back there any time soon mind! :)
