    I first visited this drain previously back in June 2011 and entered the system via a lid roughly half way along the tunnel and headed north. The trek seemed to go on for ever with little in the way of features apart from a very tricky section where the tunnel was lined with plastic and was the most slippery surface I had ever tried to walk on. Eventually, the runnel rounded a bend and I was greeted with the O Rly Junction that I had been looking forward to seeing for myself.
    (I have just realised that I never actually posted the original report!)

    Anyhow, it had been a long time since I had done any draining, so it was great to meet up with ConcreteJungle to return to explore the southern stretch of Deep Ochre.

    Unfortunately, we didn't get to see quite the number of features we were hoping to, due to what appear to be a fairly recently installed set of dams across the tunnel which had created almost thigh wader breaching water levels. However, it wasn't so much the high water levels, but rather the nasty methane being released by all the festering shite that had built up behind the dams.
    As a consequence we didn't get to see the overflow chambers of the two Low Level Sewers on this occasion but were treated to beautiful brickwork at the junction of the overflow chamber to the Middle Level Sewer No1.

    Looking forward to seeing your photos CJ! :)
