    Today myself @KM_Punk and @Keve (CC Member) where due to head off to one of our project citys, how ever Keve called in sick. So myself and Punk decided it would be a good idea to tick some more of Leicester off of the list.

    We decided to track Trinity North...

    Trinity is a collection of 3 drains that drain storm flow from the Beaumont Leys area of Leicester. This is the north most of the three and the second largest... (Trinity Central looks a nightmare)

    This is the second of the series that we decided that we would crack tonight... Getting in this one was not quite so straight forward as Trinity South.

    We decided to visit a manhole that Myself, Punk and @Yorrick popped a while back, Deciding that the only way into this thing was to bite the bullet and crawl our way in, and by fuck did we crawl...

    Unfortunately, this didn't turn out to be anything spectacular, but needed to be done non the less.

    Myself an @KM_Punk enter a chamber and our journey begins with a 3ft RCP..

    This lasted for what seemed like a mile, but more likely 100 meters or so until we get to a split.

    (yeah I fucked up on the shadow... oops)

    After a few hundred or so meters of at least comfortably stoopy 5ft RCP

    [​IMG]

    We finally get to the overflow chamber for a much needed rest.

    Any yes, this one is ultimately very short and quite shit. But alas... its now checked off of the list.

    I like the last overflow chamber shot...does that let a nearby stream/watercourse overflow into the drain during times of heavy rain?

    SSRs are very common and now even more so since the requirement to use SUDS became common place.

    Most of them just blend in and most of the year will be dry and can be used for other things.
