This was my first drain, so obviously had no idea what to expect. Turns out, I love it, can't believe I had never got down there before actually.

This storm drain, sometimes also known as the 'Malago Storm Water Interceptor', was built in the early 70's to help cope with the flooding problems faced in Bedminster. It is roughly 2 miles long, and runs adjacent to the Southern Foul Water Interceptor, with various overflow chambers along the way.

Thanks to urbanity and tumbles for providing useful details for this trip :thumb

I know it has been done before, but as it was my first, wanted to put something up about it.

The photos were taken on a point and click, so not fantastic, but did my best!

On with some pics:
