Entry Level (Sewer), Bury
Stuck for ideas and despite the recent weather, I decided to finally check on some leads I had been researching earlier this year whilst laid up
I had done a fair bit of walking above ground to locate liddage over the past few months, it was just a matter of taking a closer look..
Arriving in Bury on probably one of the worst days possible, thats right it was pissing down, not ideal for draining
A good few hours of fail were spent before I finally found what I was looking for - Loud Noises
Now soaking wet, I struggled with a grid for a good 10 mins before it finally budged!
(Apologies for the shit handheld pics, this was done during flooding in confined spaces)
When it rains :
Upstream - I located this lid in rather a high profile area, about 12ft down was this reasonable sized piss pot
The sewer was at capacity due to the amount of rain in the past 24 hours
Looking Left the fresh was forced through this 600mm hole
Hitting the wall with some force was propelled down a small vortex to the storm overflow below
Realising actually climbing further down the ladder was a no go, I decided to follow it further downstream
This is where the footwork had previously come in, I'd spent a while locating this lid
A break in the human traffic and I was down..
The noise was incredible as I climbed down the ladder.. Below a 2.1M Trunk Sewer
The flow was insane, NO WAY was I stepping my good foot into that shit
Further Downstream, I located this lid in the arse end of know-where
Once down the picture speaks for itself really, the way on was a definate no go, rain or no rain
I do have a good idea where this goes, so WILL be back
