    Tis the season to go in drains falalala lala la la

    I had a couple of hours spare so decided to pop over the hill and head down Ladybower.

    I didn't expect the area to be swarming with tourists so I waited in the bushes like a flasher until the coast was clear and headed down and in.

    Very nice, didn't realize the plughole shaft was that short.

    May need to take my French Fancies out for a visit ;)

    Yeah Lady Bower is surprisingly short, I reckon my 5m rope would suffice really :D

    Must get back one day with a few Kronies maybe
