Whilst looking for a lost 1 year old white cat, decided to look at irwell river in bury, next to RRG/Ford junction.
Went upstream and discovered a tributary leading off under a old mill i think.
Went to other side downstream, seems under road junction access only part way due to design maybe
saw 3ft outflow next to weir as well

tried to get into bridge from downstream this evening but lots of metal fences blocked way, pics towards bridge going upstream and small tiny outflow pipe from industrial area

At the moment you're just walking along a river mate, it's a good way of finding things but it's hardly worth a report.
Try getting down one of the outfalls you've seen
