We visited the gorton falls
This is a 2 mile culvert which carries the Gore brook across and around Gorton high / low reservoirs,
discharge from the reservoirs exits via a spillway, 200yd culvert, then merges beneath the first falls.
The infall lies too the east of Gorton high reservoir, towards Audenshaw reservoir.
The culvert consists of concrete tube, brick pipe, falls (one which is substantial) and side pipes or tubes.
Rather than the usual outfall theres a 20yd chute which leads too a sump then syphon, lies too the west of Gorton low reservoir.
The sump lies below this captures the dregs, while the syphan lies above this causes water too rise by pressure.

Nice stuff, the ladders in the falls are sketchy as fuck and you captured well
Thanks
The worst part was the entrance / exit the ladders were rusty and some of the bars were missing. Had to use the rope which was provided by @tallginge. As I am short could have easily got swept into the death slide.
