    Arrow Red Barn Drain, Re-visited - March 2011.

    RED BARN DRAIN - Revisited

    Following on from WB's visit to see some more of Manchesters drains...

    ...We headed on over to Red Barn after having already checking out Sidedraught Induction

    Although not all that long, it definately has to be one of the more interesting drains due to it's constant shape changes and transitions from concrete to crumbling victorian brickwork to stone

    Access is made somewhat challenging since the Outfall has a locked grilled gate covering it, WB especially liked this feature

    Traversing through, the drain continually changes shape along the way, it's very slippy with mineral deposits and in parts real stoopy!


    Outfall




    RBP - Walking Upstream




    Junction




    Stoopy




    Upstream




    Further Upstream - Egg/Blob, A mixture of brick & stone




    Junction - Here the drain continues as a shrinking 3ft RBP, No thanks!

    The 'Egg' on the left is a sewer overflow which is a real stooper




    After spending a good while dicking about, we headed back for the daylight of the Outfall




    Fail-gate



    Climbing out was more of a challenge of 'getting in' Eh WB
