East Wanks, Manchester

March 2013 - Explored with ViralEye

After a night of disappointing tiny pipes too small to get through we settled for this little culvert that I've had my eye on for a while. It runs under the East Lancs road and is quite featureless, hence giving it a suitable name.

Originally built in 1929 at the time of the construction of the East Lancs road. The main construction is square concrete box just big enough to stand in with a few twists and turns before arriving at the only inspection chamber which has a small 3' RCP flowing into it that ViralEye chanced a crawl up to find only a manhole shaft at the end. There is only one other shaft before the box changes to a 5' RCP for a short while before reaching the partially blocked and grilled infall.
