    Discovered this place back in early May, absolute cracker IMHO. Bit of a spraycrete abortion really in some places, would've loved to see it in its original state.
    Originally this drain could only be seen in its entirety if you made two trips, one from either end, but I've been led to believe a ladder has now subsequently been "loaned" from somewhere and placed up against the falls for your convenience


    1st Trip

    In we went, a huge brick chamber which led in about 40M or so, and then split off into two sepperate tunnels, one large one and one small one.

    Firstly inspecting the smaller of the two, passing an amazingly high manhold access ladder, we had to stoop a little as the pipe seemed to shrink a little.

    Eventually this pipe bends to the left and abrubtly ends where the water flows into a large chamber. Knowing that there was no way down into the chamber and it being a little difficut to light and see into from this angle, we opted to back track and check out the bigger tunnel, as this seemed to be leading onto the chamber too.

    We followed thebigger tunnel in about 50 or so meters, and again were standing ontop of a large water fall, again into the same chamber. There being no way down, we left it for the night (as it was getting
    close to 3AM) and decided to come back for the outfall on another
    evening.

    2nd Trip

    [​IMG]


    Another couple of mintues later we found ourselves at a large concrete box section that led underground, and due to our research we knew that this had to be our outfall.

    Following it inwards a couple of meters we found a large waterfall set into the concrete on the left hand side, which seemed to be coming from a plughole above.

    Navigation from the plughole to the falls is a nightmare, a horrible staircase of rock, pools everywhere. Wader breach was inevitable, tread with caution peeps.
