Decepticon, Sheffield - Visited By Ojay, Thompski & Woodburner.

Credits to Siologen & Little Mike for discovering this one. After seeing some photos last year I always planned to visit it once I was in the area.

Today was the day, after a failed Megatron visit (Fuck me they even work on culverts at 8am on a Sunday Morning!!!) we decided to head off in search of Decepticon. Anyway props to Woodburner for working this one out, seems a little local knowledge helps

Anyway what is essentially an overflow for a storm relief system, we decided to head on in and check out the place for ourselves.

At the Outfall there was a strong smell of 'Fresh' in the air, hmmm I thought this was a storm relief system?

On with a few photo's......

Once inside we were faced with more stooping (NSFW).

Eventually leading through to this box section

After 100yds or so, it opened up into a concrete arch tunnel with, a raised section down one side

there was quite a loud roar and a familiar smell of 'Fresh' in the air, after climbing up into the first insepction chamber it appeared there was a sewer running through

An indeterminable time later (what seemed like ages) we arrived at this much larger chamber

Ahead was a 7ft RCP, which went on and on and on......



F@@K this, time to turnaround and head out... Thanks for looking

....Take pictures and leave ONLY

If you carry on, you get to a slightly more impressive feature.

It continues for a long time. There are a number of infalls that lead into it.
