The Medlock rises at Strinesdale,
the culverts start at Etihad Stadium
and finish at Potato Wharf
length of about 4 miles.
The Medlock then continues, merging with the Irwell at Hume Locks.

You've done well with big Humpty, and Medlock culvert..that twin bore concrete part is U-missed, and if you follow it along a bit you come to Hulme Flumes Little Brother..full of brick porn :)

Good effort mate and especially some of the weather you have braved this lot in :crazy

Top effort, some of the old stuff down there is well worth a look, I've been down a fair few times and never tire of seeing this lot :thumb

Nice one mate, Pics are bob on, I know you battled with the elements a lot, along the way. :thumb The rocks before Humpty and the shit that's washed through (and been left there) are a fucking disgrace. Environ-mental. They gave up breaking up the concrete, from under the bricks, in the end. Why can't they just leave things be. :(
