    Found below the streets of South London this Victorian beauty is officially known as the Clapham Storm Relief and was found by Zero and Yaz.

    I dropped into the 8ft egg with TheVicar and we made our way upstream. After a slippery walk we arrived at the split, each blue and red brick pipe leading to a different section of the overflow chamber.

    The right hand branch lead a short way under a large penstock upto a weir on the sewer. The penstock itself was inoperable with the counter weights sat disconnected in a shallow pool.

    The other branch lead to the main part of the overflow chamber which was a symphony of brick curves.

    The incoming sewers were the Southern High Level Sewer No*1 and Balham & Clapham Extension interceptors.

    An unexpected surprise was what appears to be one of the wagons used during the construction of the sewer, left upturned on a ledge.

    Thanks to Mortaldecay for info saving us a long walk upstream.
