Daventry Reservoir in Northamptonshire is a feeder for the Grand Union Canal and covers most of the 140 acres of Daventry Country Park. There is an interesting and accessible overflow chamber.

The tunnel runs straight from the entrance for some distance before turning to the right and eventually emerging into a tall, two level overflow chamber. The water would run into the upper section first before entering the lower chamber through a letter box slot. If the water carried on rising then it would spill directly into the second chamber before making it's way out through the tunnel.

First post so I'll see you in the bin, cheers for looking!
