    I've fancied going for a decent walk through the Dark Arches for a while, the foot traffic was quiet enough that I could walk in without being spotted and conveniently the cctv was blocked by a board on the bridge so over and in I went.

    The water is fast flowing and because you can see from one end to the other I had to keep light to a minimum which meant lots of poking around with a tripod to make sure I wasn't about to go arse over tit.

    It's impressive inside and should really be up there with the big drains like Prime and Megatron.

    Lovely stonework down there and some nice walls and weirs that make it appear more interesting than just parallel tunnels. Good work!

    Does this actually lead into something under the station or was that all a rumour?

    I seem to remember something about a tunnel and police cars and a loudspeaker shouting at people.
