    Visited with Lenston and a non member.

    The drain was built in the early 70's to help cope with the flooding in Bedminster. It is also known as the Malago Storm Water Interceptor and runs along side the Southern Foul Water Interceptor (which absolutely stinks!). It has a number of sewerage overflow chambers along the tunnel, which is about 2 miles long, and you can definitely smell them and see the build up of fat before you even get to them.

    I couldn't believe the amount of baby eels and fish down there!
