    Big Humpty Manchester

    Big Humpty is a culverted section of the river Medlock, situated at the far end of Philips Park.

    It's a rather pleasing egg shaped structure of brick and stone, and dates back well over 100 years.

    What it lacks in length, it makes up for in it's photogenic quality...and I spent a good 40 minutes or so in here, whilst I really should have been meeting up with Tom Sherman and Marsden, but hey ho, on with the photo's.
