Explored with @Pom and @Yorrick

Over the last few months, Pom hasn't shut up about Milton Keynes. After hitting a load of dead ends in Leicester, I decided to take a look at Milton Keynes, in particular this place. A few weeks after Pom and the Vicar took a look, Pom invited myself and Yorrick to explore this one further. And success. I want go into the details as Pom covered it thoroughly in his report(http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/plunger-milton-keynes-may-2016.t103131)
It was good to get out and let my hair down following a very difficult few weeks, this was just what the doctor ordered(well, my personal tutor at uni). Thanks for bringing me along guys.
Now for some photos

























Just as a small piece of advice for anyone wanting to do this, or any other drain for that matter. The O2 levels went done it 19.8% in the following pics, take a 4gas with you.







Cheers for looking​

19.8% isn't an immediate concern, most meters will make a fuss below 19.5% *default settings depending on manufacturer

I'd go as far as saying if you end up with it plummeting below 18% then start to head out

I've experienced below 16% (not in drains) and you certainly wouldn't want to hang about

I agree with you that it's not too low, but there are people who wouldn't think about oxygen levels, and would happily jump in without considering the risks.

Agree, one day someone will come un-stuck, already had people with no real clue asking me if they cam walk upstream in some trunk sewer, you'd be somewhat otherwise be reluctant to piss in
That's worrying. I'm very picky who I drop down with these days, for that reason. Some people don't consider the risks, and that's when the shit hits the fan.

Safety is the key. That sump looks super scary. Is the gate always open like that, or did you open it?

Interesting report nonetheless.

It was already open, you're obsessed with that sump ain't you;)

Just a fear of mine, suppose I will have to get over it somehow. Bit negligent on the part of the E.A. or the local water board to leave it like though? What do you think worst case scenario would be should a drainer fall in? Is it possible to pull oneself out to safety.....looks rank in there.

Cheers again.
