    The day

    Visited with Lolly92 and a non member

    Done loads of times before and difficult to get a different take on this place, was a good couple of hours though and fairly fresh in parts​

    Some History ​


    Sometimes also known as the Malago Storm Water Interceptor it was built in the early 70's to help cope with the flooding problems faced in Bedminster. It is roughly 2 miles long, and runs adjacent to the Southern Foul Water Interceptor, with various overflow chambers along the way.

    Some pics ​

    I like this drain, it felt different to others I'd done before it. Bigger, cleaner and easier to traverse but slightly threatening and dangerous too, imagine it gushing fully. That Bristol drain mud in the outfalls is quite something too, proper smooth fudge.
