    Default Hulme flumes little brother/ medlock culverts, manchester, march 28th 2013

    Visited with nickindroy

    Met up with nickindroy early morning and started our river medlock explore in ardwick Manchester and came up to ground level 6 hours later next to a old run down building almost next to Oxford road train station.
    We got a good few pictures on the river and we also took a couple of the run down building on our way past.
    It was a good laugh wading through the river We had a good time.

    Here are my shots











































    Here is some snaps of the old run down building



















    Thanks for looking and i hope you enjoyd

    Pretty good walk round there. I believe the sewer bit with the iron penstock is called UMIST. It's fantastic how some codenames come about, its called that due to the fact of the mist coming off the warm sewage and the fact that some people in the flats above the metlock beck thing were throwing fruit at them as they waded through the water! UMIST!

    Err...

    We went in there once at the end of a manc weekend with a couple of hundred quid's worth of fireworks and proceeded to have 15 minutes of sheer anarchy. Scott said something about it being named so because they were out looking for drains, found this one right next to the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), and it's a shit boring featureless concrete box, hence You-Missed...

    Echoes like a motherfucker when you hurl a firework down it though.
