    Underground Reservoir, North London

    I've done a fair few resi's and associated bits & bobs, both live and disused over the years, but this place is pretty special..Really!


    I managed to find this info on the place a while back so thought I would share it:

    Maybe something that Boris Johnson should consider via the capital growth initiative :D


    Anyway after sinking several Kronies (each) whilst waiting for bhg to show up we eventually wellied up and headed in

    Excuse the shonky pics, I was half cut, knackered and my shutter remote packed up...well actually went for a drink of it's own

    Steps leading eventually to the surface

    Once at the bottom I turned on the mighty cree and was greeted with this, around 100m x 45m of brick Pr0n

    [​IMG]

    The place is enormous, constructed entirely of Yellow stock brick, the detail is rather impressive for what is essentially a water hole in the ground

    Looking down one of the side arches which stretches nearly 50m

    Inlet/Outlet pipes

    Alternative entrance

    These steps lead up to a belled up surface building which contains monitoring equipment for the many installed sensors and cabling to monitor subsidence,
    presumably from the nearby tube line which has shaken the place to death over the years

    They're actually some cheap Chinese knock-offs 'Munters' :D

    Cracking shots dude, and as you've said, this place is absolutely immense inside so it's hard to capture properly so bloody well done for 30sec exposures :thumb

    Fantastic structure and very envious that you got to see this, even tempted now to head South for a scotch egg :)

    It probably will get a fair bit of traffic, but please contact one of us before going as the site is being monitored by Thames Water for the roof collapsing and we don't want them getting spooked by weird measurements being recorded :thumb
