I remember when they drained Ackers Pit by my house a year or so back. Brought up hundreds of antique bottles, some worth a good 50 or more! I'd keep my eye on this, might find some interesting stuff.

good it shouldn't be drained. i agree with andy they are finding it hard to drain this but they cant stop all the leaks on the other water pipes which has caused us to have a hose pipe ban.

It would appear that they've pulled the plug on emptying it.

Charlie T's has still got a man on site to oversee whats left of the effluent plant i.e.stop any crap from contaminating the rivers.I think there is also 24 hr security.Used to work there and from what I can gather all the machinery is long gone,all thats left is empty machine sheds.Wasn't the safest place in its operational days so be very careful if you do decide to "do it".

It's back up to full levels again now, so nothing to see. When it was nearly drained, there didn't appear to be much more to see than on the pics.

The one good thing about it, is that you can take good pictures
