Talk:River Tib

Are the coordinates at which the River Tib join the River Medlock intended to be accurate, or are they simply meant to rest on Deansgate station? They do not sit above the River Medlock. They also do not line up with maps which show the route of lost rivers of Manchester, published in Lawson & Lindley’s 2008 paper[1], which is based on The Lost Rivers of Manchester[2]. Anecdotal evidence from a now closed forum discussed the Tib passing underneath lock 91 of the Rochdale Canal. Based on the cited sources I have plotted that the correct coordinates would be 53°28′23″N 2°14′54″W / 53.47304°N 2.24835°W / 53.47304; -2.24835. Markcrossfield (talk) 19:17, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Probably a little east of there, somewhere under the old gasworks. The lock in question is Tib Lock. Mr Stephen (talk) 23:08, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I had seen Green’s map but never noticed it showed the Tib! I’ve updated my trace on Hidden Manchester and it looks like the proper coordinates would be more like 53°28′23″N 2°14′52″W / 53.473164°N 2.247663°W / 53.473164; -2.247663Markcrossfield (talk) 02:27, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
