Hi Folks

Anyone been to Wet Earth Colliery near Manchester (Clifton'is) recently. I'm interested in what is remaining from James Brindley's pumping system for the colliery - the inverted syphon etc. I have limited mobility these days but it was quite overgrown the last time I was there about thirty years ago.
