Park Bridge

"For nearly 200 years, Park Bridge Ironworks was a thriving family business. Hundreds of people were employed here and its iron and steel were exported around the world. Nestling in the beautiful countryside of the Medlock Valley, here you can discover the fascinating past of this once busy iron works"

Im relatively new to these forums but have been looking through them since i was young, this is my first serious post so i am not sure of the do's and dont's of what is relative in these posts but, here i goes!!!

Every sunday or so me and my girlfriend come down here with out dog, i came across this a few years back but last week i finally made it down and some way through the culvert, done a little research online and i have found only a small mention of this park of the Medlock which is a shame since it is such a nice place to visit, especially to try and get rid of a hangover on a Sunday morning.

on making our way down to the culvert we knew the full length wasn't really achievable due to the footwear we had on and also lack of light and also the fact we were carrying our Bichon Frise through with us. so could only really go about 15 meters through.

Im not sure in terms of length how long the tunnel is but judging from where it finishes near my friends home i would say 200 meters worth of amazing brickwork is buried beneath park bridge and not to mention the old mill above ground!

hope to make it back here in a few weeks for some better pictures with some better footwear to help us out as well and to also be able to make it out at the other end which i should have taken a picture of from above ground!

I have done a bit of research on the culvert and i think i am the first to report on it (another user mentioned i could name it)

so hopefully i can call this one "The Harley "

Thinking about it, its possibly the culvert of snipe Clough from Oldham. Unsure if any water flows along it since alexandra park was built.
Interesting couple of pictures
