Gorton Falls, Manchester

September 2013 - Explored with Ojay, ViralEye and Nickindroy

From wikipedia: The name Gorton means "dirty farmstead", perhaps taking its name from the Gore Brook, or dirty brook, which still runs through the township to-day. The brook may have acquired that name because of the dirty appearance of its water, perhaps caused by discolouration due to peat or iron deposits.

...or maybe its because of the manky smelling CSO upstream and all the shite that gets flushed down the bogs of Gorton.

This drain has it all, tight access, ladder of death, syphon of doom, rivers of shit, brick pr0n, waterfalls, proper gammy manky ladders, wildlife, even the hanging gardens of Babylon!

Big thanks to Ojay for showing us around, and to ViralEye and Nick for talking me into having another go at squeezing into the manhole!
