  • The amazingly over-the-top interior of Abbey Mills sewage pumping station in East London. A Joseph Bazalgette design, it's so elaborate that it was nicknamed the cathedral of sewage. This shot shows 4 of the 16 motors that helped pump up tonnes of raw sewage from a deep level drain into several outfall sewers. The Victorian architectural era deserves its reputation as one of the more impressive periods in history. The site is currently active and is run by Thames Water. #cathedral #sewage #abbeymills #interior #eastlondon #omgb #thameswater #london #photosofbritain #atlasobscura #iheartlondon #mylondon #unitedkingdom #victorian #bazalgette #design #hiddengems #utilities #water #industry
