    Box Factory Drain, Manchester - May 2013

    Visited with Snake Oil

    The Visit

    Myself and Snake Oil was having withdrawals from drainzz so after a last minute decision we decided Box Factory Drain it was!!

    This was a nice simple one - from the outfall this was a 2 bore concrete culvert which carries the River Irk under the bus station, a shopping centre and a factory which eventually get smaller towards the infall. On the left hand side was a couple of CSO's and surface water drains whilst to the right leads to the Great Hall.

    The outfall i believe is normally very silted, but as it hasn't rained properly for the past few weeks the water level was pretty low. We made our way up the left hand side concrete box and came across a small RCP which seemed to lead to no-where. A little further on was the twin surface water connection drains and then eventually a 5ft CSO. We did plan on venturing up this CSO until we heard an absolutely almighty bang from inside the CSO so decided to give it a miss and carried on to the infall.

    We made our way back down the other side where we reached the great hall which ended up being around 30ft high and was probably the best "feature" we'd seen that night! Further on was some more box concrete, some more box concrete and then eventually back to the outfall.

    Enjoy the pics;
