UMIST / Hulme Flumes Little Brother - Manc​


As my last trip to the Medlock was cut short by the missus demanding I get my arse back home
sharpish.. I decided to arrange to jump back in and have a quick wander, ably assisted by
Nickindroy, Marsden1002 and TomSherman.

After a quick pint in the Lass'o'Gowrie we headed down to first of the nights quarry, UMIST.

Originally reported by Siologen a few years back, this is essentially a split concrete box section
with relatively few redeeming features, still it was worth a wander.
