    Finally managed to dig the waders out and take some time out to pay a much need visit to Sheffield's Megatron.

    A friend and I decided to enter the Porter Brook via the outskirts of the centre and had a steady walk down. We'd not anticipated how long this would take, the sunshine on the way down made it that much more inviting though.

    After stumbling over many a rock and nearly breaking my neck on a couple of occasions we finally made it to the entrance.

    We had a good walk round and made it all the way to the other side before cracking on with some shots, I think we lost a few hours down there but was great fun and really enjoyed our first Draining explore.

    History:

    Deep underneath Sheffield city centre - below Park Hill, the train station and Ponds Forge - three rivers meet in a Victorian-engineered subterranean cathedral, built to protect the city from devastating floods.

    A soaring arc of brick, these huge vaulted tunnels were built in the 1860s as culverts and storm drains for the Sheaf, Don and Porter Brook rivers. They converge in the middle of Sheffield and after heavy rain they would frequently flood the centre of the young industrial city in the nineteenth century.

    On with the shots......

    Hope you all enjoy:)
