Pandoras Box, Bradford

History

A CSO on the West Brook making up part of the underground Bradford flood alleviation system and completing my exploration of the known parts, including Bypass, Macro and Academy.
 
The room features a giant processor with the sewer flow running through the middle. 
 
There is a three tier chamber further up with a CCTV camera monitoring the flow which I didn't shoot due to bad air and rising water levels from the rain above.
