Lumb brook cutting? Nowhere near the MSC. :shock:

Peter, So called as the canal cut across the course of the brook as it wound it's way to the River Mersey, the following 1896 maps shows the course and the dotted line indicating the route of the syphon carrying it under the MS canal X into the Runcorn Latchford (Black Bear canal) then via an outfall y toward and into the river Mersey ay Wilderspool z.
