    Thornton Rd CSO, Bradford

    Not to be confused with Thorntons Chocolates, this place is one hell of a grimey sewer overflow!

    Part of the upstream Macro system, I originally had a look in here last year with Thompski on our quest to cover the entire system

    Although you can wander in and around the outside of the overflow chamber, access to the sewer and screening chamber behind isn't possible from here

    In the past few months I have been on with covering the bits & pieces that have either been missed or I needed to re-shoot with my partner in crime Squirrell_911 aka captain shit stain

    We have spent many a night lifting lids & sniffing shit around the City, in order to crack more stuff

    DIY SOS called and Squiz has been out of the game in favour of painting shit, but we did find a bloody big grid that needed lifting and never quite got around to heading back :(

    After nearly 2 months out of drains, we headed back, this time with MJS joining us

    We soon had the lid open and I shot down some ladders

    Draped in fanny plasters and Bradfords finest we were soon down

    The first thing that hits you besides the smell and the size of the place, is the height of the tidemark around the screening chamber

    Wouldn't want to get stuck in here when it over flows :eek:
