    An outfall culvert intersects the main sewer at 45 degrees via an intersection chamber,
    this discharges excess sewerage to the Moss brook during bad conditions.
    The outfall culvert consists of a 400 yd, 1.5 mte wide brick pipe.
    The main sewer consists of a long, 2.1 mte wide brick pipe which widens through the intersection chamber.
    On the left the works 5 sewer merges with the works 6 sewer via tumbling steps,
    passes through the intersection chamber & continues west through a redundant penstock.
    Theres a new concrete screening chamber half way along the outfall culvert,
    during bad conditions excess load pours across the weir & along the outfall culvert
    the screening chamber then filters the exctera eg (allows the water to pass through) which continues to the Moss brook.
    The original culvert is intersected by 10 ft concrete wall,
    this along with 2 penstocks maintains the levels & acts as a detention tank.

    thankyou for waiting midway while I went through the latter part.

    Good shot of the Work 5 and 6 Sewer confluence!

    The new section of SSSI was still in a lovely clean state when I visited in 2014.

    Thing is, nobody really sees these places so aesthetics shouldn't be a problem, however the old boys took pride in their work, sure it's mainly concrete these days but still you'd expert a bit more finesse with the finishing

    Quality of work varies between the different contractors it seems

    Yeah the work usually gets contracted out. Perhaps its a case of out of sight, out of mind, as they don't expect explorers to be mooching about down there?

    By then the explorers may well be exploring drains that are suspended way up high in the sky and are see through with led lighting and high speed internet access, lol
