My first report

Shouts To Xan Asmodi.....Bunker' is a storm drain located in the Southern area of Warrington, taking overflow water from various rivers and carrying it underground to the outfall at the Manchester Ship Canal. Built in the 80's the system spans a length of around 7 miles to the end and back. It incorporates various inspection chambers (some 3 storeys tall), a huge junction chamber, and massive steps which create a loud whooshing noise down. Also there is an impressive swirl chamber towards the start of the drain with a large downfall pipe, to slow the energy of the incoming water and drop it to the drain below. There is also a sewer pipe running next to the drain, which runs inside the flat platforms you can see in some of the pipes. I had a fantastic visit here with Xan Asmodi and the image hound. Well worth the five and a half hours we spent underground.

A junction type room that went off to stairway and plug hole.
