The Third Man

06 October 2014

Region: London

Today we’re looking for drains and manholes in Bleeding London.

Congratulations to Alison Adcock for uploading the 25,000th pic to Bleeding London.  In celebration of Alison’s stunning image, we’re looking for drains and manholes today.

Interestingly, manhole covers can tell us a lot about the area as the older ones show the addresses of the manufacturer.  We’ve been following a few addresses in some areas and are amazed that there could ever have been a factory in what are now busy high streets.  If your manhole hunt leads to any interesting discoveries, let us know and we’ll publish the stories on the website and in the next issue of The Bleeding Londoner.

Bonus points will be awarded for any drains or manholes in the suburbs and there are double points for the following postal districts:

We’re still looking for post-people for some of the postcode areas. If you can help co-ordinate the streets that have been covered and arrange some coverage of your area, please drop us a line at london@rps.org.
