Hyde Falls takes the Wilson brook under a canal and motorway, it features a large chamber with two waterfalls.
I was in Hyde at a lose end having had a look at a couple of inaccessible drains, so went to check out Hyde Falls. Found by Nckt & Dan Helsing this watercourse ducks in and out of culverts on its way to the River Tame.
I had a look at the middle section, it starts as concrete box with a canal overflow spilling in, then changes to a spaycreted tunnel with a rock bed. This opens up into a large chamber, the upstream brook splits in two and enters the chamber as two waterfalls.
