Tin Brook
The Tin Brook is a culverted stream which runs under the town centre emptying into the river underneath Merseyway. It was used to supply water to, amongst other places, Mr Thomas Ross' Weaving and Spinning Factory in Adlington Square and had at that time (1822) a fall of twenty feet which turned his water wheel. The name comes from the tinmen who had workshops on the banks of the brook.
Visited with Ojay

Originally the plan was to head down Cookie Culvert but the tiny infall looked like a bit of a stoop so we headed to Tin Brook.

First thing Iv'e got to say is this is a fantastic culvert that runs direct under stockport and as it runs under the brewery it smells amazing.

There are loads of features and brick porn.

The only reason we left a bit sharpish was when we looked out of a hole to see the building above being demolished and that there were workmen literally 2 inches away from us.

On with the pics and no doubt Ojay will add his soon












Will defiantly head back soon
