    Well i didn't know how today was going to go to be honest. The morning sucked i overslept, had left my phone at work and had no way of contacting anyone!. Luckily my phone still had a bar of battery life so i made a quick call. "see you at 2:50pm".

    Off i head. Everything was fine till i got to London and realized i had no idea where the hell i was going. I drove randomly around through the most jam packed streets i have ever seen past Hyde park and as luck would have it up to Camden!.

    Parasite, officially known as the "Camden High Level Relief Swr", The yellow brick pipe runs from Highbury at its start and through to Camden and connecting with the Fleet Storm Relief at the end. The pipe started off 6 ft and every so often it could increase by another ft before finishing at around 8ft at the end.

    We thought wed try to get a head start on the walk and enter halfway up the pipe, so we barriered up our manhole and went down. Sewer. Hmm back up we go i wasn't in the mood for messing around so we headed over to the previously explored entrance.

    Down we went we emerged right at the end just below the Fleet swr a small laddered shaft lead up into the overflow chamber with a odd "plunge pool" at the bottom.

    We headed left, and after a few minutes of walking the pipe grew a bit and another entrance shaft joined. This one was slightly different as it was a large spiral staircase going up to the oddest manhole cover i had ever seen. We took a few pictures and continued on.

    A bit further along the pipe opened up again finally we could stand up straight. After a little break and a bit of fun messing around with the greatest sounding echo in the world we continued on.

    As the echoes got closer and closer the pipe began to silt up and a bit further along we came to the end, a dead end. The pipe was bricked over with two smaller pipes taking the flow through into the Fleet Relief. While the wall was only 1-2 ft wide it stopped our passage with the Fleet in our view but sadly out of reach we headed back to the start to check the other end.

    After a little bit of walking we arrived at the shaft/plunge pool. I couldn't see the purpose of this apart from just trapping water, it must have gone somewhere once though. As we photographed the pool we noticed loads of little objects floating around. On closer inspection we discovered they were little creatures. Not sure what but imagine a really really small see-through shrimp.

    After a few more pictures we packed up and headed out to find another way into the Fleet Relief.
