    Supercharger A and Supercharger B are culverted sections of the Gore Brook, separated by a short unculverted section and a railway bridge. Entering at the infall of Supercharger A takes us through a brick tunnel approximately 10' in diameter.

    After about 200 metres there is a concrete section at which a small drain connects to the brook.

    The outfall of Supercharger A is a short distance downstream, where the brook continues under a railway bridge.

    We now enter the concrete infall of Supercharger B.

    After a short walk through here the tunnel becomes brick before a waterfall, from which point the tunnel reverts to the same style as that of Supercharger A.

    The tunnel continues on for some distance without change. An interceptor pipe crosses overhead at one point with a small CSO chamber and processing room on the right. The tunnel continues on and eventually widens out a short distance before the outfall, where there is a connecting tunnel on the right. This takes us to a large, concrete CSO chamber.

    From here I made my way to the outfall and into the park.

    Nice one, I love the bits of pallet wood, that hold up the infall to B. Someone from UU might see this and sort it out, although I doubt it. :thumb
