    Tin Brook - Stockport

    I'd been wanting to have a look at this section of the brook for as long as I can remember, having passed on a previous invite from Freshfingers,
    this time I was bang in the mood for a crawl about in a freezing cold poo ridden stream...Who wouldn't be ?

    Tin Brook is a culverted stream which runs underneath stockport, passing under Robinsons brewery and Stockport precinct before finally discharging itself into the river Mersey.

    "The name Tin Brook given from the circumstance of the workshops and places of business of tinmen being on the stream or near it wherein they threw there refuse"


    Visited with Ojay, Freshfingers, Paulpowers, Nickindroy and Tom Sherman

    Finally, It was good to back underground after a self imposed ban on all things drain related

    [​IMG]

    Brick, brick and even more brick, with a cheeky whiff of 'fresh' thrown in for good measure

    Evidence of the old mill above, although a quick evacuation would be tricky with such a backbreaking stoop

    [​IMG]

    Old meets new, although this modern section is no-less photogenic than the brick porn on display

    As far downstream as we could manage on this excursion, although we inserted an Ojay into the smaller pipe
    in an attempt to budge a lid...unfortunately to no avail

    The small pipe leads to the outfall setup, I went down to see how much more debris was blocking the drop shaft

    The lid was in the grp bit, the one I lifted out into that scrub we went and looked at later ;)

    Cool. It wouldn't be a northern drain report without the obligatory words fresh, stoop, brick porn and ojay. All boxes ticked well done.

    Not a pleasant crawl that but someone had to do it, FF had neck waders on etc, I was virtually in my underpants by comparison and soaked to skin, I'm not sure why I bother with this silly hobby :D
