Report - The "Majestic Culverts" Oldham - March 2013

Basically a culverted watercourse taken from the Strinesdale reservoir which runs through a water treatment plant, another section runs under the site of the now demolished Orb Mill and a section which runs under Majestic Mill, a really nice mix of old stone, brick, some occasional concrete..... and slippy floors.

The water source comes from Strinesdale which is an area of water and woodland covering approximately 40 acres (162,000 m²). In 1991, the reservoirs were drained and replaced by two smaller lakes with the old reservoir sites being planted with trees and grassland. The original reservoirs were built in 1828 and the erected plaque can be seen at Upper Strinesdale.

First done and named as far as i'm aware, by Ojay and TLR last year.

The infall at the beginning of the first section at what's know locally as "The golden steps" a nice old stone arched section​




A change to more modern brick construction


The stoopy little outfall


The infall for the next section, mix of stone and old brick





Looking up from the outfall


Another outfall built for dwarfs


The outfall from the Majestic mill section starts with some concrete square section


Then decent sized stone arch


Then a mix of stone and concrete square section


With a small old CSO on one side with that distinctive smell.


The infall


All in all a nice culvert, cheers for looking :thumb
