Report - Bunker Reloaded, Warrington - January '12

Visited with Image Hound and The Kwan

I recently got a message from The Kwan asking me if I fancied a revisit with his good self and Image Hound. Last time I headed down here, I'd just got my - then - new Tamron 10-24mm lens, I'd not done a whole lot down below the earth. Bunker is nice, as drains go; my last report says it all really.

Bunker really is an interesting place with many different features. According to a conversation I had with Paul whilst down there, this is the mother drain [in the UK]; the one that started it all in the late 90s. Siologen agrees with this

You really have to take Bunkers seemingly lacking merits along with the knowledge that its the drain that started drain exploration in the UK. it might not be the best anymore. But for years it was.

Plus everyone keeps going in from the wrong end. You gotta start at the upstream end where all the good stuff is.
I think it's a cracking drain and I'll be heading back to finish off bits that I've missed.
Almost three months later and feeling a bit more confident,
I decided to return and see what I could do.


Designed for a one in thirty year storm, most of it's tunnels and passage ways are big enough for my six foot one inch height without much stooping.



Spanning three and a half miles under suburban Warrington, Bunker is a huge RCP storm drain.



Numerous tumbling chambers are located along the drain



Also numerous inspection chambers


That are great for improving on your photography :p


The favourites, and the reason Bunker is so nice have to be three things. R.A.E.L. chamber...



The mega sized tumbling set



...and the plug hole. Last time I missed out the top of the plug hole, not this time!


And top

Finally, adieu from the three of us


Thanks for looking :thumb
