this chamber is just a few meters below the fountain that's in the middle of the old steine. sewers at the far end at large enough to stand up in, when those tunnels have to inspected two men get into a boat and float down it. if there have been big enough rain fall the water will flow over the wall in the middle of the pic and then to a storage tunnel that runs from the king alfred leisure center to black rock, its 3 miles long and tall enough to drive a double decker bus down. once a storm is over it then pump out, before the tank was there it would just flowed into the sea
