Neat drain situated just behind Bishop Allen's school field, as per the name. Angels of the Underground is the only other website where I've seen an entry. The outfall grate has a cut beam, allowing one to squeeze through into knee height water. A thin yellow rope is fastened to the ladder of a manhole, which serves as the only way up and down a steep incline which features a waterfall. Watch your step; the flooring is potholy as you enter.

    For as far as I could see, there was a "splitter" running down the middle of the drain, effectively taking up a quarter of the drains' total volume. It makes walking through the standing height RCP pretty tiresome, but is a cool feature that I haven't seen elsewhere. According to Micro, it serves to split the flow and dissipate the energy of storm water. This makes sense, seeing as the outfall had some little potholes on its concrete flooring.
