Visited with Urban Soldier, Ojay, JimmyHalfway and Rookie.
This Victorian built drain started so that you could walk down it with a slight stoop to a 3/4ft crawl with myself and Rookie going an extra 50 yards with the others waiting behind to see if we could pop a manhole in the next chamber.
At first the water seemed clean but by time we had reached the last chamber it was disgusting, Filled with silt and other drain nastiness including an old Phillips phone Haha.
We entered various chambers and off cuts along the way with a mix of stone and brickwork but also newer concrete sections for the newer manholes, Closer to the Entrance/Exit there was also a small sump causing the water to disappear off elsewhere.
We came together to name it â€˜Helter Skelterâ€™ as the twists and turns of the drain, Sometimes on a steep gradient with old handles placed along the walls looked very similar to the fairground ride.
It was a good test for my new P7 and also one of my favourite drains of yet.
Myself just before the serious stooping.
Crew â€“ Urban Soldier, JimmyHalfway, Ojay, Rookie & Myself
Sadly we did record some decent video footage but it has not been edited completely, Iâ€™m sure the other will have some pictures too add.
Thanks for Looking, Gone...
