    I have wanted to see this place for over 2 years, so was great to see it at last. I like photographing Victorian brickwork, which upstood years of use and then years of neglect, and is still in good condition. Many thanks to Hughie for this one.

    Very little history on the place but this is the underground Victorian reservoir of the Grantham Water Company which was formed in 1855

    Explored with the most excellent company of Mikeymutt, Rubex & a non member
