We will discover clean spring water bubbling beneath our feet from a freshwater river that still runs under the city and we will see barnacles on the walls from where the tide used to come in.

Landmarks

We will learn some fascinating facts about landmarks above the ground, such as the new £300 million improvement scheme bringing cleaner seas to Sussex and the Volks Railway Station at Black Rock.

Cleverly disguised as an ornate Victorian station, it’s actually a pumping station which transfers sewage and storm water to the treatment works in Peacehaven.

CLOTHING

Dress for comfort, such as trousers or jeans with a long-sleeved top. We do not recommend wearing shorts or skirts. 

Open shoes or high heels are not allowed. We reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone who has incorrect footwear. You will be provided with protective latex gloves and safety helmets which must be worn at all times.

FITNESS

The sewers are deep, poorly lit and slippery. Walking through them and climbing a 15ft vertical exit ladder both require reasonable agility. 

Sewers are confined spaces and the atmosphere can be unpleasant for some and cause breathing problems for those who suffer from asthma, bronchial illness or angina. 

The sewers could also induce claustrophobic distress for some visitors. If you have any doubts about your fitness to participate in a tour, please consult your GP.
