    Thanks very much too all esp Jobs for making this possible,
    been on my list for a while now please too finally get this done.
    Visited with Jobs, Paradox and 2 fellow explorers ( apologies I forgot your names),
    pleasure too meet you all.

    The Victoria arches are a network of brick arches built in the retaining wall of the Irwell,
    (Manchesters principal waterway) during 1838 they are about 100yds west of Mounts bank.
    Originally used for steam packet cruises and business premises, these were abandoned earlier in the 20th century
    during the 2nd world war they were converted for use as air raid shelters with the installation of blast walls capable of holding 1619.
    The arches were bricked up too top of arch and the steps removed or filled in during the 1970s,
    there were also public conveniences which had access via the arches and street these too are bricked up too top of arch or filled in.
