    After visiting Sidedraught Induction twice in the past it was time for me to complete it fully with pictures but also to continue downstream with the Gore Brook to have a wander through both parts of Supercharger.

    If you complete all three sections in one explore you encounter a nice mix of Brick/Stone piping, RCP, Square concrete sections, A small water fall, Sewage processor, A gripper, Wooden overflow controls, Overflow chamber & Penstock Controls.

    Leaving Sidedraught we continued downstream in search for Supercharger passing many onlookers with a look of disbelief as 4 guys wadered past in a dirty brook...

    After Part A we sat and chilled out for at least an hour next to one of the main train lines into Manchester...

    Just before you emerge from the outfall of Part B there are two rectangle concrete at water level, After climbing under these we walked down some RCP to this first chamber.

    JimmyHalfway ended up in the drink on three separate occasions, Good times.

    Thanks for looking, Gone...​
