    River Westbourne/Ranelagh Storm Relief Sewer

    Ojay/Leaf1471/MJS


    It's been almost 12 months since we dropped into a lid somewhere North of Hyde Park and followed the Ranelagh storm relief through a small brick tunnel downstream until it reached the first relief chamber


    In the picture below taken by MJS I'm stood in the Ranelagh main line sewer, with the Serpentine connection on the left and the storm relief to my right

    We headed downstream following the sewer through the modest 8ft yellow & red brick pipe, careful not to slip into the fresh

    Eventually we reached the main overflow chamber known as 'The Egg'

    Here the main line sewer runs down a smaller channel above the top of the overflow before it eventually heads d/s dropping into Mid Level Sewer No.1

    Beyond the weir boards and girders are a set of ladders down to the lower section of the CSO

    Here 'The Egg', (which is the main overflow for the Ranelagh relief and also serves the KSP CSO)

    Is located directly opposite and below the French Embassy in Knightsbridge, this junction is huge, and to be finally stood within it was amazing.. far bigger than I had imagined it!

    The 2 slots above are the overflow weirs for the main line Ranelagh sewer that runs above as seen earlier

    The smaller RBP, which quickly leads to a smaller egg shaped section which serves the KSP CSO

    Opposite, the larger egg is the final outfall to the Thames

    I only followed this for about 10 mins whilst Mgay & Leaf dicked about in the CSO before turning back..

    (We did have much more to cram in)..

    A quick lick of the fresh, Gangsta lean Stylee..

    ..before making our way back up the main Ranelagh sewer and exited via the nearest manhole, as you do
