I spent all day working down Essex and London I was going to pop down a London drain but after sitting Rotherhithe tunnel I decided to fuck london off and get home.
I reached Derby at 7pm, I'd been driving since 9:30 am and felt like I'd been prison gang raped so I needed a decent walk and Flo Selecta is quite a walk.

The Markeaton Interceptor Storm Relief Culvert also known as "The Flow Selecta" and "The Markeaton Interceptor" is a storm relief culvert running under Markeaton park taking water from the Markeaton basin across through Derby city center, and out into the River Derwent. The culvert was constructed in 1938 in response to the 1932 flooding of the area with various improvements made in 2006. For the most part the culvert is of concrete and brick construction and approximately 12 ft high. Access points can be found at regular intervals, the largest of which rises up by 8 floors. The culvert is almost one and a half miles in length and takes water from the Markeaton basin across Derby and out into the River Derwent.
